The Storehouse of God

I am a news & weather junkie...really! I feel a need to watch our local news once a day and HAVE to watch the weather forecast before I go to bed! Is that an addiction?

I feel as a Mom that I need to know how my girls need to dress tomorrow, according to the weather! However, I do realize that watching the weather doesn't always mean I'm going to let them go out dressed appropriately for the day.

I am always amazed, though, to see how often the forecast changes from day to day in the 7 day period. I'm not sure why I get surprised, it is only a forecast!

A while back, life got really busy. I mean so busy that I didn't have time to catch the news or weather for a couple of days in a row. This was one of those times when the forecast changed tremendously within that couple of days!!!

I watched the weather forecast one evening and the weatherman called for only a chance of showers over the weekend....a 10% coverage! 10%! That's not much chance of rain! I took notice but didn't figure we would get much, if any, rain for the upcoming weekend!

Boy, was I wrong! I missed the weather forecast for two days, and lo and behold, it seriously changed - to 70% chance! I will have to say, though, it was really cool to lay there in the middle of the night and hear the unexpected rain gently fall to the ground!

It reminded me of the scripture in Job 38:25-28....
25.Who cuts a waterway for the heavy rains and sets a path for the thunderstorm?
26.Who waters the land where no one lives, the desert that has no one in it?
27.Who sends rain to satisfy the empty land so the grass begins to grow?
28.Does the rain have a father? Who is father to the drops of dew?


I love that my God is in control, even of the rain! I am once again reminded that we are mere humans and that He sends the rain to satisfy the land and allow the grass to grow!

I hope He is sending rain your way this spring, to water the earth and your life!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow....like rain!

God's girl,

Too funny, I talked about God being in control in my post today too!

Have a good weekend!
