Rain makes days feel dreary and miserable, but rain is a gift from God. Think about what would happen if it never rained again. People and animals would die, crops would fail, and the planet would turn brown. Even though rain annoys us sometimes, it's necessary for life. The rain is a blessing, and I'm thankful to God for it, even when I go for a walk in the cool, late afternoon and return home soaked to the bone. God sends the rain on both the righteous and unrighteous. He does so because he's merciful and loving. You can trust God to send rain and nourish the earth because he's promised to do so and his promises never fail!

But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.
-Matthew 5:44-45

But God made the earth by his power,
and he preserves it by his wisdom.
With his own understanding
he stretched out the heavens.
When he speaks in the thunder,
the heavens roar with rain.
He causes the clouds to rise over the earth.
He sends the lightning with the rain
and releases the wind from his storehouses.
-Jeremiah 10:12-13

In Christ,


  1. Your blog is darling. :) I really love it! I was reading your profile, and I thought it was cool! That you're a missionary kid, taking graphic design...

    anyway. I was just blog hopping and wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your blog!


  2. Rain. I don't like it either. But compared to 4 months of snow. I love it! haha

  3. Thanks, Bleah! :)

    Mikayla - I know! Snow is so much worse than rain. I really can't complain about the rain.
