For some reason the weather often makes me think of God. A few weeks ago I wrote that you can't escape from God like you can't escape from a cold chill in the air.

Well, this morning I was making a few visits around Crawford when it began to rain. It soon began to pour. For a few minutes it poured down rain. It rained to the point that it became hard to see.

Anyone brave enough to stand in this down pour would soon be ... drenched.

The image reminds me of this ...

"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! " (1 John 3:1)

I pray that you allow God to lavish his love upon you. I pray that you would stand, with arms wide open, and allow yourself to be drenched. When you are completely covered in the love of God you will realize what it means to be a child of God.
