As I sit here in my quiet spot, listening to the rain falling softly outside my bedroom window, I hunger for more of Jesus. I struggle to stay focused on my Bible reading. My thoughts run astray on events of the past few days, concerns for the future. But I feel an intense desire for connection. I often try to quench that desire through Facebook, text messages, and TV. But what my heart really desires is a connection with the Lord.

Why am I so quick to seek connection everywhere except where it can truly be found? I think I'll just sit here and watch the curtains blow and listen to the rain. Feeling like the presence of the Lord is in the rain this morning.
