Beautiful rains and snow fell on portions of Texas over the weekend. At our home in Arlington we had over two inches of rain. Praise the Lord! Back in December, I wrote a blog about the drought that was once again taking hold of the land. See blog. During worship at Granbury, Texas yesterday morning, the worship leader, Isaac Duke, read the following passage:
"For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year" (Deuteronomy 11:10-12).

My heart leaped with joy. This is the Lord's promise to Texas. I looked up the newest drought map on the internet. There has been improvement throughout the state over the last few weeks. We need to continue to enthrone the Lord over us. But what caught my eye was the location of the severest portions of the drought. They highlight the location throughout the state of the El Camino Real de los Tejas that we will be travelling at the end of the month. Watch for a new blog on the trail soon and join us in possessing Texas for the Lord.
This land, which we are about to possess for Him is a land "which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year."
Texas belongs to the Lord. Drink in His blessings, Texas!
