After the Rain

Published May 10, 2014 by birdieklh

Today is a glorious day. Bright blue skies. Refreshing, gentle breeze. The sounds of nature are in full harmony, once more, declaring the glory of their Creator.

There is so much peace that surrounds my heart.

Many sad things have taken place during this time frame – the passing of friends, loss of jobs, financial changes, yet, there is a joy that overflows my spirit.

It is kind of like the difference between yesterdays storms vs. the contrast of today’s beauty.

Rain brings needed refreshing. Rain brings a cleansing. Rain helps bring forth new growth.

I find myself crying out, “Abba, continually pour out Your refreshing rain upon my spirit!” because I know that only by allowing His rain to refresh me, to wash me, to help me grow . . . will I be able to become all He desires me to be.

Sometimes I have these grandiose ideas that God will use me in some great way – to have a huge impact on those around me for His Kingdom, for His glory – but I realize that He doesn’t always do things in BIG ways. He often does things in the stillness, in the quiet, in the small, in the normal day to day ‘stuff’ we call life. I need only be willing and be listening for His voice and then be obedient to act upon His instructions.

Big, small, or somewhere in between . . . all I know is that I need His rain. I need His refreshing Holy Spirit rain . . . and then to be ready . . . after the rain.

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
