It's raining today. I find it very refreshing. The temperatures are a little cooler and the plants are getting watered by God.

When I was in Lawra, Ghana, it rained twice. It felt so good because of the extreme heat. The kids loved it and they played in the rain feeling the cool water on their skin. It was if everyone was revived by it. We all felt renewed and refreshed, ready to face whatever came our way.

The Lord does the same with us. He rains His love, His mercy and His Holy Spirit on us to refresh and revive us. He prepares us to face today, tomorrow and whatever the future holds for us. We need to soak in His presence and allow Him to work within us. His rain is always good!

Is It Necessary?

It is necessary for me to go; but it may not be necessary for me to live.
