Rain is important. Too much rain, you get a flood. Too little rain, you have a drought. Just the right amount of rain, you have a harvest.
Harvest! The sound of the word rings in my ear.
And we await a spiritual harvest. A time, not when the Spirit is poured out as rain, but the time when the seeds have germinated and born fruit. When the rains have saturated the ground with moisture and have called forth the life in the seed.
We wait, we work for harvest.
