Loud. Rushing. Flooding. Running off.
Deep crevices in tracks.
How can bayous not crack?
Water, water literally everywhere.
The earth can not contain it.
No where for it to go.
If you ever been or lived somewhere where the rain is massive and the storms loud, you know what I am talking about. And of course since everything is big in Texas; the storms must be too.
The state itself is a massive chunk of land. It is half the size of Alaska but 60 times its population! And it is larger than several small countries.
Its cities are huge. 3 make the top 10 list of largest cities in the whole United States.
Not so long ago when the world’s population was 5 billion, it was said all of it could fit comfortably in the big ol state of Texas.
It is home to at least 58 of the 500 fortune companies.
And let’s face it, if you ask a Texan where they are from no matter where in the world they may be, they will answer Texas not the U.S.
Oil was first discovered in Texas, beef is big business, and the love of high school football is unrivaled.
Oh, to be a proud, stand up tall y’all, with your ten gallon hat and spur studded cowboy boots, rodeo goin’, truck drivin’, dirt kickin’, mud slingin’, country lovin’, big hug givin’, Texan!
As a Christian, we should be just as bold and proud. We should stand up taller when we talk of our Saviour. We should walk straighter, sing louder, and make our God prouder in how we carry ourselves.
Let the Holy Spirit reign so big in your life so that no Texas rain could ever come close to how the Holy Ghost is keeping you afloat.
“I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.” Ezekiel 36.27
Do so and others will see you…
