Thoughts About Drought

Yes, it’s an unusually hot, dry summer on the high plains.  In the news, there are reports of the hottest June ever recorded, and July is looking to be more of the same.  Thus, I cannot help but give the pending drought conditions some serious thought and prayer.  I have been considering the various ways that mankind may be either accepting or challenging the idea of drought, which according to Webster, is “a prolonged period of dryness which damages… or prevents successful growth.”  

What is at the root of drought in our own experience? What may be prolonging a mental drought?  Is it fear, worry, doubt, lack, greed, anger, pride, selfishness, judging, complaining, . . .? 

 Are we accepting those things which uproot or prevent our successful (spiritual) growth … or are we challenging them?   More in tomorrow’s post…
