Rainy Weather

Today is a rainy day here, but I love rainy days. Showers of Blessings from the Lord above, even in the Fall/Winter time, we still need rain. Gets you thinking about this time of the year doesn't it? Showers of Blessings? Have you thought about the many "Showers of Blessings" that God has given to you in your life? I guarantee you that once you start listing your blessings, you can't stop! God is good and He is good ALL the time! He gives us nothing that we can not handle, and He gives us nothing more or less than what we need.

Why is it that many only think of their blessings and count them at Thanksgiving? It this is the only time of the year that count your blessings, or thank God for your blessings, then I encourage you to stop, and begin thanking God everyday, not only for the good in your life, but also the bad. It is through the bad too, not only the good that we grow closer to God. Many only lean on God through the bad. Why is that? I suppose that many believe that they don't really need God or need to lean on Him through the good because everything is good. But when we go through the bad, He is the first one that many reach to. God cares, not only in the bad, but also in the good. God cares ALL the time! He cared so much for us that he gave his ONLY son for us! If that isn't care and love than what is!

I encourage you to stop....at this moment stop.....stop talking....stop reading.....stop complaining...stop ignoring and start thanking.....start listening.....start praying....start loving....start putting God first.

Psalm 107:1
"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
