Let It Rain!

Let It Rain!


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!

  1. I read this once. It was so profound, I memorized it.

    “God isn’t about making good things happen to you, or bad things happen to you. He’s all about YOU making choices – exercising the gift of free will. God wants you to have good things and a good life, but He won’t gift wrap them for you. You have to choose the actions that lead you to that life.”

  2. God bless you! You were the first person who reached out to me in my time of need during my daughters addiction/recovery and I am blessed to know you
