I am one of a very few people who love rain. I love it. I just do. Four days straight of clouds and downpours? no problem.
“How great is God – beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out. He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind” Job 36:26-28
Of course, I have not been seriously affected by these rains. My basement is not flooded. My road has not washed away. I have not been evacuated and forced to leave my home behind. I probably would not love these rains as much if my situation was different.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Praying for all the men and women affected by the flooding on the East Coast today.
