Do you ever feel like God is distant? Most of us do at various points in the journey. I have found that it is not God who is distant, but rather more of my failure to see him up close. This week Brasilia has enjoyed wonderful life-sustaining rains. Rains that not only give basic necessities like food and water, but also color, beauty, scents, freshness, growth… Can you see God’s reflection in the rain? “But he showed that he was there by the good things he did. God sends rain from heaven and makes your crops grow. He gives food to you and makes your hearts glad.” (Acts 4:17 CEV)
