Hey, everyone!

What an awesome day we have today! We are seeing Scriptures fulfilled! Ecclesiastes chapter 11 and verse 3 says, "If clouds are full of water, they pour rain on the earth!" It's been happening just as it is written! In fact we have a 70% chance of Zechariah 10:1 being fulfilled right here in East Tennessee! That Scripture says, "…it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain…"

There may be a good chance of scattered showers so that could also be what it means in Amos 4:7 where it says, "I sent rain on one town, but withheld it from another. One field had rain; another had none…"

Psalm number seventy two talks a lot about our weather and a lot about our Savior. It says that the love, blessing, and smile of the coming Messiah…our Jesus… is to us "like rain falling on mowed fields". If it doesn't rain for awhile…like in recent days in Anderson, Roane, and Morgan Counties...the grass we mow just turns dry and brown, yucky, even crispy and crunchy. For someone like me who loves to mow, it's just sad.

And a heart without Him just turns dry and crunchy. It's just sad.

And there's really nothing you can do about the rainlessness! You can water with the hose, but, hey!, there's nothing like rain sent from heaven! One hour of moderate rain is the same as watering seven quarts per square yard! Good luck on trying that at home!

And when we get a whole day of moderate rain, like yesterday, well, I can just almost hear my little grasses going, "ahh!…ahh!…ahhh!….ahhh!…ahhh!…ahhh!…" all over the yard!

One verse I loooovvvveee is from a talk the Apostle Paul was giving in a Turkish town. He was telling them heavenly things they had never heard, and he said that God wants us to know that He's there and that He is good and that He loves us!

And how do you know this?

Easy!

He sends rain from heaven! And He fills your heart with joy! Check this!

"Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy!” (Acts 14:17)

I looovvveeee that! How do you know God is there and that God is good?

Rain!

And joy!

Those moments when you're just flooded out of nowhere with joy! It's a moment only God could give! It's a message from Him that says, "I love you, little one!"

Y'know, the next time it gets dry and crunchy out there, we can ask God to send rain from heaven. (James 5:18)

And the next time it gets dry and crunchy IN there…in your heart…you can just ask God to send joy! Not talkin' 'bout making all your problems go away, but just sending you some joy straight from His heart to yours…(Romans 15:13)

If you need some joy and ask Him for some everyday, here's my 7 day forecast. Your chances of getting some... 100%!

That's the weather!
