showers of blessing we need!

Rain Showers over the . Taken in

It rained all day today!  One report says we have had almost 1.5 inches of rain today!   It has been wet, raining a little bit for several days in the past week.  While the chilly, wet weather is not as comfortable or as much fun as mild warm weather, I can’t complain about these showers.

In fact, the showers remind me to sing … Showers of Blessing!

There shall be showers of blessing: This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing, Sent from the Savior above.

Showers of blessing, Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling, But for the showers we plead.

Ezekiel reports that the Lord said, “I will bless them and the places surrounding my hill. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.”

As a child growing up I remember times of “revival.”  These were one or two week long services at church … my family was there nightly … we worshiped, prayed, pleaded with God for revival … a refreshing in our own souls and for the salvation of those dear to us.

There shall be showers of blessing, Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys, Sound of abundance of rain.

Showers of blessing, Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling, But for the showers we plead.

The Living Water cleanses, refreshes, washes us clean … just as H2O is essential for our physical life, He is essential for the inner life, life eternal.

Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.  Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.  I will proclaim the name of the LORD.  Oh, praise the greatness of our God!  ~ Deuteronomy 32:1-3

 

Drench me … with your joy … may it overflow … in praise to the greatness of our God!
