Water, Water, Everywhere!

“Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you–the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month” (Joel 2:23).

Starting last Tuesday evening, we received six inches of rain within 36 hours in the Israel Prayer Garden.  By Wednesday afternoon, the Canada geese thought the garden was a lake.  God is good, and we receive this precious gift from His hand with rejoicing.  By the time I took these photographs, the water had already started to percolate into the thirsty ground on Thursday morning.  Enjoy the show!

    Thank you for sharing God’s wonderful gift of rain in the Garden.
    It simply speaks refreshing all over. What an amazing watering of the earth before your first planting. Love that rain gauge. Maria

    Apparently God took the prayers that were prayed at our conference, very serious and answered quickly! Praise Jesus!
