Showers of Blessing
Day 96 of Photo Inspiration — Showers of Blessing
Yesterday, my friend and I headed out for our early morning walk. There was a gentle rain coming down on us. We didn’t mind. Our time with each other, and with God was worth it — rain or shine. Always looking for the “God” attention-getters, we asked “What are YOU saying to us about the rain?” Almost simultaneously, we said, “Showers of Blessing”, and we began to sing that old song, “Showers of Blessing”:
There shall be showers of blessing: This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing, Sent from the Savior above.
Showers of blessing, Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy-drops round us are falling, But for the showers we plead.
After a glorious Easter celebration still reverberating in our hearts, how sweet for Him to lavish upon us the reality that indeed, He LIVES. He is all around us. We sensed His presence in the rain. We sensed His showers of blessing. We prayed those blessings to all those around us, our families and our friends.
Maybe you didn’t get the “goosies” about Easter because you’re so caught up in a “drought” in your life right now. It may be a dry season and you’re desperately searching for a way to get back to feeling alive and well in Him. Maybe there’s a difficult situation that has drained you of your emotional strength. If so, then I encourage you to call on the “Shower-Giver” today. He has showers of blessings for you. He wants to rain blessings in your life – and not just a light rain of blessings. He wants to pour down heavy showers of blessings on you! God wants to drench, soak and saturate His children with His love, His goodness, His grace, His mercy, and His kindness. He wants us to flood us with blessings! And if we call out to Him, and continue to obey and trust Him even in the most difficult circumstances, He will show up in the midst of our drought, just as surely as the arrival of rain, and pour out His blessings upon us!
“Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know Him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.” Hosea 6:3
