Relief


The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail  Isaiah 58:11

It's been dry here, plants and garden definitely sun scorched with temperatures staying high. Then we had rain, a wonderful thunderstorm. The next evening we had more rain, then the next, it rained once more. When I went outside this morning, it was green again, the dirt had that black richness of a well watered garden.

The verse above came to mind. When the "heat" of this life makes you feel sun scorched remember the Lord is there to meet your needs, his word water to your soul.

Dear friend, I can relate physically and spiritually right now. This was a great post for me and a great verse of scripture.

A very vivid picture indeed. Especially when we are experiencing a drought in our area. We see what the land and foliage look like and we can apply that to our souls. Then we see the beauty and life that the waters bring and Jesus' words come to Life right before our eyes.

The Lord has been pouring water on my soul and spirit lately and what a joy, which is so appreciated when you have felt the drought.

Now physical rain for our land also.

Maryann,
I found your blog a few months ago after my precious husband James unexpectedly died the day after Christmas. "It is Well With My Soul" is also one of my favorite praise songs so I jotted the name of your blog down and meant to get back but didn't. Just came from Pink & Plaid Warrior's blog and saw you there, again.

I am a breast cancer survivor as well. Stop by my site sometime and say hello.

Best,
Brenda Coffee
