Waiting

Monday 5 December

In David Attenborough’s programmes showing the desert, it is often a film of the transformation when the  rain comes.

We start with  barren, dry, cracked, scorched earth. It seems that nothing could live there. Indeed, it seems completely dead. Yet, with the rain comes the life that was hidden and dormant, and it happens remarkably quickly.

It sometimes feels that we are dead and lifeless, or at least that certain parts of us have closed down. But creation is waiting. It is expectant.

When things feel barren or desperate, we are yearning for the rain: yearning for the coming of Christ that washes over us continually and when he comes again will satisfy the world once and for all.

Lord, when I feel barren or desperate, answer my yearning for your living water. By your grace, help me show your life to others day by day. Amen
