Send the Rain

Father, I want to thank You this morning for reminding me of Your love. The God of gods, the Lord of lords, the mighty and awesome God loves me. Lord, you will send the rains in their proper season. Rains of healing. Rains of comfort. You will pour down and shower me with a downfall of Your presence if I hold tight to You, worship You and cling to You. You alone Father, are worthy of my praise, the One who has done these mighty miracles that I have seen with my own eyes. Lord, I'm sitting parched. I need a downpour.

here where self and sin and sadness
have displaced the oil of gladness
here in barren desert madness,
weary and dry
cannot run or walk, I'm crawling,
but through shame I hear You calling
clouds of mercy, raindrops falling
downpour, I need a downpour

come, come like the rain,
wash every stain, fall upon me Jesus
river of God, flooding with joy,
rise up in me, Jesus

into my heart's desolation
flows the water of salvation
fill this lowly wasteland with the
shower from above
only You can quench my thirsting,
fill until my heart is bursting
Jesus ever be the first thing
downpour, I need a downpour

Joy, I'm amazed that with all your going through you're still spending time in the word and still finding time to share what you learn with others!!! What a testimony and what a faithful witness you are even though you may feel like anything but at the moment. You are a giver in every sense of the word. I pray that the Lord refreshes you moment by moment as you faithfully refresh others with insights from His word.

In this morning's service we sang Casting Crown's "I Will Praise You in this Storm" and I thought about you. Our entire worship team prayed for you this morning. Keep your hands lifted to Christ. We are all around you holding your arms up to the Father.
