Drought?

Isaiah 58:9-11

When you beg the LORD for help,

he will answer, "Here I am!"

Don't mistreat others

or falsely accuse them

or say something cruel.

10Give your food to the hungry

and care for the homeless.

Then your light will shine

in the dark;

your darkest hour will be

like the noonday sun.

11The LORD will always guide you

and provide good things to eat

when you are in the desert.

He will make you healthy.

You will be like a garden

that has plenty of water

or like a stream

that never runs dry.

Contemporary English Version

  2. I'm glad this was an encouragement to you too - we are in real need for rain here and our garden is suffering - I like the idea of being a 'well watered garden' - flourishing and beautiful!
