God’s Promises

photoMid-week Inspiration: Rain, Wildflowers and God’s Promises

This week I wanted to share with you a picture from my back yard. I love this vine which I believe is a trumpet vine. The arbor is made from Cedar–my husband cut down a few of the smaller cedars and built it last year. But what amazes me is that the trumpet vine blooms, in spite of our drought which has been going on for several years now.

Isn’t that amazing? Hummingbirds come and hover around the blooms, drawing sustenance. Bees buzz in and out of the blossoms. The leaves provide shade. In the midst of drought, we have all of these blessings.

Which brings me to Deuteronomy 28:12

The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.


Isn’t that a lovely promise? Many of us in Texas are draw encouragement from those words. What promise from God’s word helps you through difficult times? Use the leave-a-reply at the top of this post and encourage someone else today.
