Rainy Season

I sit in my car and wait, and as I sit I watch the rain come down.

One of the first rains of the season.

Drop after drop hits my parked car and I listen to each sound as it echoes on the roof.

I sit there and I think.

And my mind hears each splashing raindrop of the season we are in.

A life is lost, violence rises, and friends buckle under the weight of crisis.

Addiction wins, hope seems far, and the darkness hovers just outside the doorway.

Icy raindrops hit my soul, and I shiver.

The cold seeps in when it’s all falling down around my ears, and the sun has fled.

Windy rains are sweeping through the city and dryness and warmth seem so far off.

The rain is not stopping today, so I reach for the door, one hand on my umbrella.

I step out of the car and sink in to the cold stream of water running down the street.

But I walk down that street anyway.

The rainy season has come, but it is only a season.

    I hear your heart my Sister & Mother of a lost generation! As you walk through this “rainy season” do not lose heart & hope! What you see in the natural and what you hear through the voice of circumstances does not have the supreme authority nor does it have the final word! What is seen is temporary & what is not seen is eternal! Find rest for your soul under the “umbrella” of His Presence & Promises!

    2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NKJV) Seeing the Invisible!

    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

    I realize that these afflictions do not seem light nor would we define them that way according to the pain in our soul and emotions. Only when measured by the Cross of Christ & the glory that is inevitable when we persevere & endure suffering and heartache can our perspective enter the paradigm of the truth of this Scripture!

    Praying for you as He loves you through this season and restores your hope and fortifies your strength!
