Outside, the rain is coming down as a soaker…refreshing the world around me.
Even more refreshing, I am observing a family laughing and playing together in the downpour. At first, I wanted to grumble about how dangerous it is to play on a roof and in the rain. Then you hear the laughter of the kids as they spend a few moments in fun and joy with their dad. What a refreshing scene!
Even more refreshing, as the rain continued to pour over the city, there was the sweet scent of fresh rain as it washed surfaces like apartments, stores, the road, and even sidewalks around my building.
Even more refreshing is that rain can bring healing and salvation to people as it refreshes their lives according to Isaiah 45:8 (MSG), “Open up, heavens, and rain. Clouds, pour out buckets of my goodness! Loosen up, earth, and bloom salvation; sprout right living.” What needs to be revived or refreshed in your life?
Even now, we are worried as we look for a reliable mover; however, we must trust that God will provide and bring either the right mover or the right person to drive a truck. After all, He is lining everything else up for us as we find temporary housing and other necessity like medical doctors for this move
Even more refreshing, as we face this fear, we know that the Creator of the rain will provide as noted in Acts 14:17 (NIV) “Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.” What blessing is needed in your own life?
As we look for a mover, we must remember to continue to praise and bless God so that we can get thumbs up from Him as we move forward with our dream. Therefore, in conclusion, my husband and I must continue to look forward to the blessings and doors that God will open as we continue on our journey.
What obstacles are you facing as you approach your journey? Do you need to be refreshed through the power of cleansing rain as you face this obstacle? On the other hand, do you have a dream or vision that needs to be revived through rain that is refreshing?
Whatever the obstacle might be, remember to play in the rain and soak up His goodness…
