"And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." ~1 Corinthians 6:11

There are so many things I love about summertime.e

The warm weather and gentle breezes, the trips to the beach and vacations with family.

But there is one thing I love more than anything else -- summer storms.

Last night, we received one such heavenly explosion.

Thunder crashing loud enough to rattle the window panes...winds so fierce that trees were bowed...pebble-like hail snapping like popcorn on the pavement...

...and the rain. Oh, the splashing torrents of water pouring down from thick, black stormhead clouds.

As I stood at the slightly-opened door, gazing out at the terrifying beauty on display, the rain began to splash up from the stoop and began to soak my feet and legs.

Only a few moments spent outside to close my car's windows was more than enough to soak me through and cause streams of clear rainwater to flow down my face and neck, pooling into droplets on my eyelashes.

I was completely drenched.

And it was in that moment that the reality of God rang so clear in my heart and soul...almost the point of causing me to shout aloud with clarity.

I want to be overflowing with God.

I want to drown in His majesty.

I want to be swimming in the River of His love, covered from head to toe in the peace that passes all understanding.

I want to leap into the puddles of His joy and salvation.

I want to be so close to Him that droplets of His power soak me through, and act as evidence to the entire world that I am serving at the foot of the Cross.

I want to be drenched again.

Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness... Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." ~Ezekiel 36:25-26

I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know there's nothing but light when I see you. :: Shinji Moon
