No umbrella

You sent abundant rain, O God, to refresh the weary land.  Ps. 68:9

Rain during a period of drought is unconditionally welcome. Some people are so happy to see rain that they go out and dance in it. Welcome the rain of the Spirit with open arms and no umbrella, too. God’s presence  soaks into dusty souls. His Word hydrates shriveled spirits. Worship and praise draw His living water in through the roots and allow faith to deepen and hope to bloom.

Lord, rain down.
