Last week I was drinking coffee on a rainy day in a waffle house in America. I was thinking how everything familiar felt so far away, when the radio started playing the song Africa, by Toto. I knew from WhatsApp’ing my friends that it was also raining back home in South Africa.

I was reminded that ‘the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him.’ (Psalm 24:1 – http://bit.ly/2vAsEfX)

He blesses the rains down in Africa, and the rains on every other continent too. I’m praying that knowing God holds the whole planet – all the beauty, all the brokenness – will help you make sense of things today.
