Lizard Shower

I was watering newly planted hedges this morning, and I noticed a lizard in the open grass right next to the one I was watering. After a few moments, I noticed he wasn’t moving at all. I moved on to the next hedge, hoping I was not the cause of his demise. As soon as the water stream shifted away from its reach, the lizard moved to the next hedge being watered. Though I saw this, I really didn’t anything of it, except to say I was glad it wasn’t dead. Then the lizard did it again… and again… and again. Hedge after hedge, the lizard followed that water stream, as if refreshed by the shower of rain that fell upon it.

I wonder… what refreshes you? It’s not a question or even a possibility that many of us have contemplated lately. Ask yourself that question… what refreshes me?

Jeremiah 31:25 says, “I [God] will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”

Brothers and sisters, in this time where we may find our souls to be weary and our spirits to be faint, look to the source of all refreshment and rejuvenation, the source of all restoration and sustenance, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for it is only in Him that we can find refreshment, only in him that we can be satisfied. Come into His presence in scripture, worship, and each other, and be refreshed.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. May the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, keep you safe and make you strong, this night and always. Amen.

Fr. Brian+
