Joy and Cause in the Drought

DAY 226

The grass is turned to straw and stubble. Relentless sunshine continues to bake the earth, and while there are clouds, big ones that give one hope of rain, they evaporate before your eyes.

We are in a drought.

What to do?

Pray and believe, and rejoice. Like the sunflower, look up and shine. God knows our condition. He hears the prayers of the righteous.

Psalm 32:11
Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Stand fast and know that HE hears.
Isaiah 58:11
And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Haggai 1 Interesting read on drought brought on the people because they did not attend to the house of the Lord.

We are the temple of the Lord are we attending to the holy matters of our lives?

Rejoice that God is worthy of all praise. Attend to the spiritual matters of life.
AS for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Easy to say, not so easy to do. I look at my life and wonder why so few hours reserved for Him. I desire to be like Mary, sitting at His feet, listening and drinking in His every word.

Well, I have some sitting at his feet time to do.
Have a blessed day.
