Rain

Sometimes the rain is refreshing

Sometimes the rain is a blessing

I don’t want to rush outside today

Inside I’ll rest, revive and pray.

Hope, Patience, and Faithfulness.

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

Romans 12:12

“Then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.”

Leviticus 26:4

“Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.”

James 5:18

“Now the apostle chose to give this example, because it was a common thing for the Jews to ask for rain: we often read of such a doctor, that he prayed for rain, and it came; and of another, that he asked for the rains, and they descended: and his view is to observe, that the weakness and infirmities of the saints ought not to discourage them from prayer; and that they should be earnest and fervent in it, as was Elias, a man of like passions with themselves”

  1. May we learn to be thankful for the rain and the sun. Both serve a purpose. And rainy days can be soothing days to stay indoors and rest in the the Lord’s presence. Beautiful poem and post. Blessings, my friend. ❀

  3. Indeed. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing.

    One of favorite verses during a stressful time is Isaiah 30:15.

    β€œIn repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”

    Some have talked about the benefits of prayer walking. Me? I’m experimenting with prayer napping πŸ’€ (Pray until you fall 😴 asleep).

    1. πŸ˜ƒ Yes, this is very insightful! Actually, it’s funny prayer really can make you fall asleep. I need to remember that one when I wake in the middle of the night. Thanks David!

  4. I made the most insightful comment on here last night, but it disappeared.

    Could you please check your SPAM folder? I’d write the brilliant thought again, if I remembered what it was!

    PS. I gave a shout out to you in my blog post today. I hope you see it that way.

    Blessings.
