Need Some Rain

First, our condolences go out to the Miller and Einhaus families. Both families lost Dad’s last week and we lift the families up in prayer knowing only God can comfort and strengthen you at this time.

We really had some good racing. Thanks to all that came out this week and thanks to the Ronald McD. House coming out to MIS. What a good cause and good support they give to hundreds of families.

Wow! It is hot and we need some rain! We were looking around the track and there does not seem to be a green blade of grass to be found. Of course the weeds are still green. The heat has been on us for some time now and most are looking forward to relief from it. Few of us enjoy this much heat.

As I thought about the heat and grass that is so brown, I thought what a great illustration God is giving us. So we have gone days in high heat and without rain and we watched the grass loss color and dry up. We can be like that too. If we think we can go without God’s Word, His Spirit, and His fellowship we too can dry up. Our life can get way out of sorts. Our relationships can get fractured.

Just like with grass, the best thing is to have an adequate amount of rain daily, not enough to water log the roots and not to the point of starving them out and leaving it brown and crushing under foot.

Read these verses: John 6:33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”  John 7:38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” John 1:1-21 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.

We see here that Jesus gives life through the Spirit and through His Word. We need to have a daily amount that is right to keep us “green”, in other words, in fellowship with the LORD. For some that is a verse a day to think about. Some it may be reading a chapter a day and some an hour of study and reading. You and the LORD know what is right for you. But for all it needs to be daily. Each of us needs that daily rain of God’s Word into our life. This also helps us to battle sin.

So I hope you are in the Word daily. One of the greatest encouragements I can hear is when ones say to me, “Look at what I found this week.” Or “As I read this week I learned… from my Bible reading”.

Hope to see you at a track soon and have a great day racin’ in the SONshine,
