Summer. Life moves slower, time is more plentiful, and the days never seem to end. Summer is the perfect time to be intentional in building faith and in building relationships while having some fun, too.
Do you ever let your kids play in a soft summer rain? This is such a fun time. Better yet, have you ever run around and squealed in a soft summer rain with your kids? I have done this a few times, and my kids LOVE it!!! What really makes this fun is if you do this in your clothes rather than changing into bathing suits.
The next time you have a day perfect for this, just do it, even though it will most likely be a lot of work. I am willing to bet you may even enjoy yourself. I did, it was so much fun!
After you are inside and dried off, read Isaiah 44:3, which says, “For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.”
Then, talk with your kids about how God sends rain as a blessing to His people. Just as the rain pours down to bring relief to His people, so He does with his Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a gift to us and to those who follow in our footsteps. God provides us with just what we need, which includes the food we eat, the health we experience, the breath we take, and even the rain as well as His Holy Spirit that guides us to a life of right living. We can rest soundly in knowing that He is here with us. When we see the rain, we can remember to give thanks for the refreshment of the Holy Spirit.
Close your time together in prayer, thanking Him for the rain and for His Holy Spirit.
