Rain




Rain rain rain. I am really happy I have finished up Jeremiah and Lamentations in my daily Bible reading. Those are weepy Bible books, and with the weepy weather, I could drown in dismal.

Now I have reached one of the strangest books of all, Ezekiel. I won't pretend to understand the really bizarre images in Ezekiel, but I read a verse that reminded me that even in the dismal rainy days, when the sun is blocked by clouds and the ground is a morass beneath me, God is guiding. My job, the verse told me is to stay on the course He is directing me. Go where He goes, do not turn aside no matter how torrential the flood that seems to be washing over me. Where He goes, I go; where He leads, I follow. It can only rain so long.

Ezekiel 1:12 (NIV)
Each one went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, without turning as they went.
