Last night, we were blessed with an abundance of rain. Most people expect storm clouds during the winter months, but for us, rain means water for our livestock,and more grass in the Spring.
In my last article, I wrote about the presence of trouble in this world; specifically hardships we can’t understand. But last night’s rain storm reminded me of a spiritual truth: Even in our darkest hours, we may expect blessings.
Now, I’m sure, many of you can think about a present hardship. If you are hurting due to illness, or some emotional distress, you can’t see any good in it. I do pray God will heal whatever hurt you may be experiencing. But I can testify to the fact that many people never open a Bible, or consider praying unless they are in some form of distress.
Since we live in Texas, I can tell you, long spells of sunshine are called a “drought”. No rain means no grass, no crops, the cattle die, and the ground becomes a wasteland.
How many of you have known a person who found a need for God when they were in the hospital, or in prison? I can testify,some people never consider the presence of our Creator until they are in a hopeless situation. So, those dark times can be considered their “storm clouds”. I urge you to pray through the storm, because rain gives us hope for a season of blessings.
For now, I can only look forward to the promise Spring. Be Blessed, Donna
