Are you going through a drought?

“And now, God, do it again — bring rains to our drought-stricken lives … so those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.” Psalm 126:4,6

imageAlmost daily the drought in California makes the news. When our daughter, Susan, lived in Chico, California, we always made a trip to the farmer’s market, and I’d stock up on almonds, walnuts, and whatever produce was available during the season. With water being rationed, it’s possible farmer’s markets will begin to disappear.

In the seasons of our faith life, we may go through a drought and no one may notice. There are days when I don’t feel the spirit moving, and I write anyway and then wonder if anyone can tell I’m needing a spiritual shower.

What causes you to go into a spiritual drought? Do you procrastinate whether or not to go to church? Have you decided you don’t need a daily meditation boost? Do your burdens weigh you down to the point you collapse into bed and forget to mutter as much as “Thank you,” to God? God notices our drought and promises to rain armloads of blessings on us, but first, we need to ask.

Thank you for showering us, Lord, through the life-giving water of our baptism. Amen.
