The scripture for today is Jeremiah 14:4, NIV
“The ground is cracked because there is no rain in the land; the farmers are dismayed and cover their heads. “
My relatives on both sides of my family were farmer's. Maternal—NC; Paternal--Minn. I am sure there were many times over the last two centuries that they cried about the crops being dried out and the land rejecting them.
BUT, they never gave up. They continued to plant in the spring and trust in the Lord. Rain is gold to a farmer. They have to have it for a good crop. Not too much, but definitely enough.
Lord we pray for farmers. They need rain for a good crop and not too much to flood crops. Be with them, we need them for food to sustain us all. Amen
