Bring the Rain

I'm visiting the Concordia in Austin Texas for a conference on Social Work, with an emphasis on child refugees and immigrants. I know I am being prepared for the journey to come. Sometimes Jesus surprises me in the most beautifully simplistic ways. Like a thunderstorm.

Well, Jesus, bring the rain.

"He came and preached peace to those near and far away, and wrote his laws on the hearts of his people, from the least to the greatest; so listen, those who pursue righteousness and seek the Lord: look to the rock from which you were cut, lift up your eyes to the heavens- His salvation will last forever, His righteousness will never fail, His peace will transcend all understanding, guarding hearts and minds against the thieves who steal, kill, and destroy... For nothing can make those who love your laws stumble, and in you the fear of men's reproach and the terror of insults are gone." (Eph 2 / Jer 31 / Isa 51 / Phi 4 / Psa 119)
