Woke up to the sound of rain on the windows of the loft. We are sleeping there these days because it is hotter and drier than a desert in Texas. We can turn off the air in the rest of the house and just turn on the air conditioner in the loft at night. We have a nice comfy bed up there. But the rain, the lovely precious sound of rain woke me this morning. We have only gotten a few tenths, but it is enough, it doesn’t take much to encourage my heart that this drought, this heat is temporary. It doesn’t take much. I sat down for my time with God and I was discouraged. But I read just one verse, sometimes it doesn’t take much, and that one verse reset my heart.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 The Message
Be cheerful no matter what;
pray all the time;
thank God no matter what happens.
These simple verses were as refreshing as the rain. It doesn’t take much to move us forward, closer to Him. It doesn’t take much, just whisper His Name! Jesus!
