“Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.” James 1:17-18 MSG
Good morning, River of Light,
Rain makes me giddy! You, too? Even on Monday morn; the cleansing and rebirth that rain brings to nature absorbs into the soles of our feet muddy with rich soil, hair smelling like pond water; where freshly laundered creation is cause for celebration. Much like the third day from the cross. Transformed. Renewed.
It is from this place that we step into our day clothes, into our ‘busy’ from that wildish place … to be present to the customer, or the hammer, or the stove, or the child, or the data screens. We breathe the Wild of the freshly poured Holy Spirit into our decisions, the work of our heart and our hands, our plans, our classes, our industry, our responsibilities. He sustains all worlds. He whispers His ways to us in and out of our minutes. His Spirit courses and calls us and His responsible ones follow. Our River of Life rushes, then slows to make sure we are coming, He pauses in still waters to allow us to catch up – and sets the flow again. He has something to show us. Many things. Renewed.
Let it rain.
