Years ago, when I first surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, God gave me a wonderful gift of writing songs. I had pretty much forgotten about most of them – many were simple and I didn’t do anything with them at the time.
Today I came across a notebook with some of those songs scratched haphazardly on music notation paper. The one that struck me most was called, “Let It Rain.” Here is the chorus:
Oh Lord, let the rain fall down
Let it feed the ground ’til the flowers grow!
Oh my Lord –
I will cry my tears,
but I will not fear the pain:
Let it rain!
I am trying to maintain this same attitude now…trying to remember that nothing much grows without rain. Remaining grateful, even in times of drawn-out difficulty, has to be a purposeful choice. I’m doing my best to make that choice daily. I hope that you are too. God Bless!
