    Heavenly rain brings renewal and hope.

    Everyone struggles through crisis situations from time to time. You find yourself in the midst of conflict and it hurts. It’s a part of life. But, how do you face the trials of life and find the joyful strength to persevere? Where do you find the comfort to move forward through the painful moments, when it hurts so much that screaming out loud feels like the only way to express your grief?  

    Cry out to God. He cares for you.

    Don’t immerse yourself in drugs and alcohol. Don’t withdraw into a cave and hide. Don’t strike out at the first available person who walks through that door. Don’t blame others or your circumstances. Don’t get even. Don’t be jealous of someone who seems to have it all. All these reactions lead to more trouble and pain.

    Cry out to God. Tell Him where and how it hurts. He cares for you. He has the power to reach into your pain and bring you comforting hope and peace. He has lifted my pain, soothed my aching heart, and imparted hope many times. He has poured fresh heavenly rain into my soul and softly spoken of His everlasting love for me… my sweet, sweet Jesus.

    Jesus understands betrayal. One of his companions turned him over to his enemies for money. He understands the struggle to overcome the self. His sweat was drops of blood in the Garden of Gethsemane as He prepared to go to the cross. He was mocked and beaten, and then tortured on a cross. Still, He said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” What amazing love is this!

    He is the God of hope and comfort. Cry out to God. He will help you.

    Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15: 13).

    We are living in a moment of time. In Jesus, we live into eternity.

    • I love this! It is simple yet saturated with God’s goodness to us, as He drops the dew of heaven upon us. His water, blood and Spirit testify within us from the core of our being and as we remember His great sacrifice of love for us, we express outwardly His love, kindness and anointing from that dew of heaven! I see His power in this as well, like lightening! Thank you for this Lula – it is BEAUTIFUL! Much love, Cathy Minnick

    • Very good word. :)

    • Phil caught some great pictures of the wild horses, and I’m glad you both got to see their beauty and strength firsthand.

      The waterfall is a new favorite of mine. I imagine us lost inside the shower of God’s love and compassion.

      Larry loves the watercolor/marker/gold glory painting. It is a new era in your artistic development. He likes that you are adding “borders” now. :)

      • Hey Larry, I found a verse about the wind and the fists of God, so I added it to the post, Glorious Breakthrough! That picture is one of my favorites. Thanks for your comments.
