autumn rain

This morning, I woke up to the sound of rain. It was, in a word, glorious. I love rain. And I love the Biblical symbolism of rain- that it washes everything away and makes things new again. He makes all things new. His word is alive, and it is making me new. Over and over again. 

Isaiah 55:9-11

English Standard Version (ESV)
9(A) For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
   so are my ways higher than your ways
   and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10(B) "For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
   and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
   (C) giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
   it shall not return to me empty,
but(D) it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
   and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
