It Is Raining Now

Raindrops by Diane King

Who said it won’t be raining for a long time because of the El Nino phenomenon?

It’s raining now.

I thought it was just a droplet and a drizzle passing by and then Emperor Sun would beat his warm and extremely dry spell on us again.

It’s been 30 minutes since the rain started and it’s still raining now.

Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow!

Yes, dry seasons of our lives come and go. 

It is when trials burden you and you feel that the world is pushing you down. 

Your fair-weathered friends were long gone. You’re left with your few faithful genuine friends. They are there to share and to care.

Most of all you are left with the best option, which is to pray and pray and pray. 

Faith is one thing that your detractors can never take away from you.

Suddenly, without you expecting it, the Mighty Hand of God hoisted you and carried you easily to better, brighter and higher ground. 

Looking back you can just shake your head in stunning reality for you clearly see how God reversed your precarious situation and brought about abundance and goodness for you and your family.

The dry season is over.

God has filled you up and He will consistently quench your thirst, fill your table with food, and give you limitless opportunities.

Those who lack the wisdom of God will always fail to see His mighty hand moving and causing the seasons to come and go.

Oh God, it is still raining now!

Let us go out and bathe in the goodness of His abundance…now!

    I literally escaped from work that day and was walking aimlessly under the heat of the sun (at 35C!). I just needed to get away.

    God is soo good He know what my spirit needed that time. He made His presence felt by sending in the rain. The rain refreshed not only my tired body, most importantly, it quenched my thirsty spirit.

      Hi Tita Carmela, I was reviewing my blog posts and it’s only now that I noticed you have a wonderful and very encouraging comments here. We are out of Egypt now and headed towards promise land. Wherever life may take us, we will always stand on God’s promise. Thank you so much for sharing my blog post. I’m happy that God has created the Internet so that our messages have far-reaching readership. Thanks and God bless you always!

    Sorry for giving you a day to wait for my response…, after all comments are rewards for your good thoughts. Yup, you’re right everything relates to faith. “When two or three are gathered together in my name…” Now imagine when millions gather their thoughts together to ask God for rain!

    On the other hand, we learn from science that rain is much too expected when there is too much heat from the sun. May God us more rain…don’t forget to bring along capote on your trip to Ajuy. God Bless!

    hi jonan,
    like other creation, fruit trees and plants relish the rain.
    salamat, God bless and shalom.

      I was looking through the window of the Vaflor’s Mansion, watching the rain drench the little football field, acacia trees, and surrounding plants, when I wrote my reflection. I hope your Dad’s santol tree would bear much this June…the sweetest santol in campus. Thanks.

    Yes, fair-weathered friends will come and go, but faithful friends will be with you until the end. God is a FAITHFUL FRIEND! Thanks for the inspiration.

    My goodness, Jonan, what wonderful words, and how beautiful the rain sounds! Thank you for this inspirational message–may your gifts increase.

    I hope the rains provide quenching of thirsts on many fronts, giving respite to the barrenness of the land, body and soul.

    Best to you and the family.

      Wish I could offer you a prize for being the first to comment. I’m amazed by how you establish further reflections on what I wrote. Whatever the front would be, you are God’s “thirst-quenchers” when your life is committed to serve Him. Thus, when the servants of God congregate, it would rain definitely. It reminds me of Elijah and Elisha. Blessings to you and Linzy…the “Waters” are coming!
