The storm is coming!

Here in the south, we are in desperate need for rain.
It seems like it has been so long since we have had a good old rain storm. Usually we do not like it to rain, it keeps us from doing all of our favorite things like being outdoors and going for a brisk walk. But rain is good, and it is needed for things to grow. Things like the farmers field, the trees, the flowers, the grass.

Rain is good.

How many times do we look at the storms in our personal life as a bad thing?
Face it, none of us like to endure the storms, the troubles, the hardships. Sometimes it is difficult to see past the clouds, but it is in these moments, that God showers down His love, His grace and His compassion upon us. Even though we don't like the storm, we need the storm so we can grow in Him.

His rain is refreshing!

Blessings to you Laurie, Love this post and the is when the sky is darkest that we can more clearly see the stars, the same is true in trials-often we see God more clearly in the midst of our pain.
Have a wonderful weekend.

It is hard to appreciate the storms to be honest. What is great is that we have each other for encouragement. We are so blessed to have each other...even if on-line! :) God bless
