It was a mostly dry April and so the heavy rains we have had were needed. The grass thickened and turned green, the trees budded, and flowers are coming up.

“Drought” as defined by is “a period of dry weather, an especially long one that is injurious; a prolonged shortage.”

Life can bring times when we feel as if we are in a drought. Our days experience a lack of comfort, laughter, company, encouragement or hope. The only thing in abundance seems to be worries, fears, or hopelessness.

What do we do when drought hits our lives?

Our souls need to be watered every day. They will become parched and hardened if left to navigate these days on their own. We need to keep opening His Word ”“ every day, throughout the day, as often as is needed ”“ in order to get a word which springs out, delivering what is needed.

For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”
(Isaiah 55:10-11, NASB)

He sends His Word, the verses for us to hold onto, which infuse our souls with strength, hope, peace and determination. Both the rain, and God’s Word, are intended to impact the lives of those on earth. God’s Word, His promises, are not impotent or empty. He will make good on all He has spoken.
