In the years of this drought I have questioned–what if the water does not return?
Sometimes we have gone months and months without a drop.
There are people in my life whose lives are desert-y lives. Not just sit on the couch desert, full-blown felony and addiction desert.
They challenge my faith. So I tell God–I believe, help my unbelief.
And He says–
It is unfair to the desert to judge it definitively when there is no rain.
Rain changes things. Rain brings life and washes away the dust. Rain makes rivers in the desert, streams of water where nothing could grow.
So I pray for rain.
Jesus says he is living water. Living water poured out for us. He does not just bring the rain, he is the rain.
