I'm choosing to share a short message today. Our Sunday School teacher noted that our weather had gotten very warm and humid this week. We were glad to have rain by the end of the week. GT then noted that the relief of rain made him think along a spiritual line... Sometimes, like a dry lawn, we become dry and parched as we rush about the business of our lives. Just as the lawn turns lush quickly from a small amount of rain, out lives can be retouched and revived quickly with a touch of the Holy Spirit. Especially when we know God, when we remember to "plug in" we get nourishment and perk up!
We then went into service where I, and others, were touched and nourished by our worship and the responsive touch of the Spirit!
I discovered this song which works for me toady --
How Can I Keep From Singing?
John 4:14 (NIV)
14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
I thank the Lord for spiritual and physical refreshing. I never have to remain weary or tired if I seek God's strength, lay my burdens at His feet and let Him refresh my soul.
