What a compassionate reminder, of the LOVE of Jesus, always willing to receive us when we have a humble, repentant heart.
One of my favorite Scriptures is found in Isaiah 57:15 that says:
For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
It's the precious Blood of the Lamb of God that cleanses us from sin.
God told us in I John 1:9: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Father, HELP US, not to be ashamed or reluctant in any way to come to YOU to make
things right in our lives. It cost YOU TOO MUCH for us not to come boldly to YOU. I want to be one of the ones that finds sanctuary in forgiveness, and peace in my life, in Jesus' Name.

We need rain. Father, I thank You for bringing not only the cloud cover to cool our land, but clouds that bring "showers of blessing." I speak to the wind to redirect clouds to us, clouds that are full of rain, without a storm, hail, damaging winds or tornados. We need slow soaking in rain, our ground is thirsty. We can water and irrigate, but, for some reason, the moisture never means as much to the land as when it comes from Your rain. You are our Great and Mighty God, and are mindful of what we need. So, clouds, come, in Jesus' Name.
