Rain

dark_clouds_and_rainbow

As the rain gently falls, its cleansing design

Helps remind I am cleansed, no more need to mourn

Living drops absolve tears, and gently refine.

 

With the rain comes new growth, so I am reborn

Spirit guides and uplifts, my trust does increase

Loving more with each day, new mercies at morn.

 

In the rain my heart yields, old self is released

Say good-bye to past sins, they have been erased

Giving Son, forgiveness, you’ve handed me peace.

 

As you reign my eyes lift, I’m humbled by grace

You abide, walk with me, grant constant rescue

Folding me underneath your wings in embrace.

 

When the rain spans the sun, your promise shows through

Bidding thanks for the One who made me anew.

      1. I just have the sense that if we were to meet in person it would take more than a day for that conversation. 😀
