Raindrops keep falling on my head  

Posted by Rachel

I'm sitting on my back porch... listening to the crazy rain (that has been going non-stop since yesterday morning), journaling, thinking, praying, processing...A LOT of stuff.

It's been a long time since we've had this sort of rain, and I'm kinda loving it, though it doesn't really help my semi-somber mood. Oh well, at least it matches it.

I have had a lot of heavy stuff on my heart lately, and so I have been feeling a void when it comes to blog topics, but I just wanted to share my love for the rain (as long as I'm inside and not out in it) and assure anyone who does read this that I am, in fact, alive.

And, wouldn't it be just like God to provide me with a fitting piece of Scripture to be memorizing these past few weeks. It's a good one... you should commit it to memory with me. Especially fitting when life isn't looking exactly like you think it should, and it feels like a lot of rain is pouring on top of you instead. Choose joy.

Habakkuk 3:17-20

17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,

18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to go on the heights.

Be encouraged with me.

a touch of advice: go play in the rain! be childlike, get wet, laugh and enjoy the feel of the sky falling on your face.

it's freeing! there is freedom there that's so simple that we just can't quite grasp it like we did when we were kids...

enjoy the rain!

This is easily one of my favorite passages in all of scripture and definitely my go to verse when I feel like everything is falling all around me.
