Verses that inspire
Recently I was sitting on our screen porch when a summer thunderstorm rolled in. The sky darkened, and the rumbles of thunder grew louder. I heard the rain coming across the forest toward our home, quietly at first, then louder, and as the drops reached us, it became a roar of water.
Our Father is in the lightning and thunder, and the rain that soaks the earth -- all of these are His gifts. I thought about the sound of the rain, and I remembered this passage:
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and
all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall all
the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for He comes, for He
comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and
the peoples in His faithfulness. (Psalms 96:11-13)
