spring rain

{april 2}
spring rain.
today's forecast promises.
showers on and off.
sometimes it ruins our plans and we complain -- at least i do.
but the gardener in me knows the necessity of these gray days.
we need rain.
we need rain -- yes, even in our own lives.
not saying i like the storms.
but i am saying they are all part of growth -- our growth in Him!
in leviticus 26 God uses the words: yield, produce, fruit, increase, harvest.
outcomes only possible after a season of rain.
i don't know about you, but i want those kind of results in my life.
gray days, drenching showers, puddles and mud.
Jesus bring the rain.
"drip down, o heavens, from above, and let the clouds pour down righteousness ..." ~ isaiah 45:8
