His Rain

Rain, Rainy weather

Drops of rain

 

endless rain

 

pouring down

 

soaking everything

 

completely filling

 

every crack and crevice

 

plant and flower

 

with life-giving moisture

 

I watch as they drink it in

 

And I think about

 

the Father’s love

 

and grace

 

that is relentless

 

unending

 

pounding

 

and continuing

 

reminding me

 

that He is with me

 

compelling

 

dripping

 

saturating

 

surrounding me

 

with His unyielding motion

 

downward

 

in my direction

 

reflecting His promise

 

of devotion

 

and stubborn love

 

Like the relentless

 

rain

 

and like a thirsty flower

 

I drink it in

 

I pause and reflect

 

I allow it to fill me up

 

saturate and penetrate

 

the dry areas

 

and am grateful

 

for His rain

Thirsty

Water flowing from a tap

Image via Wikipedia

Yesterday I was so thirsty.  I drank 2 full glasses of water before bed and 2 more in the middle of the night.  I know I don’t drink enough water – it has been something I’m used to – being dehydrated most of the time.  I simply don’t think about it – I’m not much of a water drinker and my body has adjusted to it.  But there are times, like last night when I HAD to have water – I was SO THIRSTY.

In the same way I was wondering if our spiritual self loses its thirst – does it adjust to not having enough of God?  Do we fill that God-given thirst in our lives with other things – so pretty soon we do not notice?   Are we spiritually dehydrated? How would we know?  What happens when we simply adjust to it – so that it becomes normal.  Are we thirsty anymore?  Do we wait until we are desperate for Him before our thirst returns?  Lord help us to be thirsty.

The lyrics to this Chris Rice song kept going through my head in the middle of the night and I wanted to share it with you today.

Are you thirsty?

 

God Bless
