Rainy days are such a call to curl up with a good book, a blanket, and a cup of coffee. Well, at least in my mind. The cloud cover is heavy and oppressing this morning, so saturated that they must release the overwhelming amount of moisture nestled within. The drops meet the ground, first as a gentle pitter-patter, but soon increasing the crescendo to an all out escape, bathing the earth and washing it clean, while nourishing all that it touches.

So it is with God's love as well. Sometimes it is but a gentle whisper on the breeze, seeking us out, calling us to come near, and be with him. Other times the storms of life rage and we call out to Jesus to envelop us in his peace, comfort, and care. He's always there, he's always with us. Whether it be tears shed for a deceased fish, or comfort of the loss of a loved one, he's there. Whether it be for calm for today's test, or embarking on a new and exciting journey, he's there. Whether we ask for it or not, he's there. Nothing is more constant. Nothing is sweeter. Nothing nourishes better. God's love is HERE, and he wants you to take it.

For through life's trials and temptations, through the days ups and downs, through the good and the bad, through the ominous days of life, our God reigns, and does so with love and mercy. What an amazing gift he has given us - the ability to never, ever be alone. To never have to do something on our own. To never feel lost and not have a way out. Those days are gone - gone! The death on the cross crossed over that chasm that previously separated us from God, and drew us together. We are washed clean, with the blood of the Lamb, and nourished by it as well.

Time to curl up with my coffee, a blanket, and a good book...the GOOD book. God is calling me. Is he calling you today?
