Midweek Inspiration & God’s Provision
Texas is in a severe drought. It seems to me that it has lasted for years and years. When you’re enduing something, it often seems that it goes back as far as your memory does.
This map pretty much says it all. Many lakes are nearly dry, the rivers have stopped flowing and towns are scrambling for water. If you’d asked me a few weeks ago, I’d have told you we had less than 2 inches all year. Then in the last 4 days, the heavens opened – and 4-6 inches of rain fell on the Lone Star State. Showers of Blessings. Amen and amen.
The sound of rain is a beautiful thing indeed. The smell is something you suddenly remember, and the sight? Well, the sight is a beauty to behold.
One week’s rain isn’t going to end a 10 year drought. For example, Lake Medina received 3 inches, which RAISED the lake level to 3% full. We needs lots more rain. But these past few days remind all of us that God does provide. Maybe not when we think. Maybe not what we think. But he provides, and we are grateful.
How has God provided for you?
