Rainy Days: Two Ways of Thinking

As I sat here reading the Bible this morning,

I heard the rain began to pour outside.

My first thought was, "Oh no. We didn't get the yard mowed. 

My second thought was, "It's going to be a mess getting in and out of schools today."

But then, out of nowhere, I remembered the song,

"Showers of Blessings."

We use to sing this at church when I was a little girl.


I remember loving to play it on the piano.

I remember loving to hear the voices of elderly people around me singing it, knowing their lives had been marked with good times and bad.


Life will have rainy days.
Sometimes the rain will come in raindrops.

Sometimes the rain will come through tears.

This morning if you are facing a rainy day (whether it's a real rain or an emotional one),

remember this:

God longs to shower your life with more than raindrops.

He longs to shower you with blessings too.


Look to Him today, trusting Him, even in the rain.


Showers of Blessings

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.

There shall be showers of blessing,
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing,
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God we're confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.

I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing.

I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.

Ezek. 34:26

The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty,

to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.

You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.

Deut. 28:12

Today, I'm sensing that your life, like mine, has had moments of sunshine and moments of rain.

I love the song below.

I've had a thousand sleepless nights.

I've had more tears than I ever thought a life could hold.

I've had so many reasons to question God's presence,

but I've learned this by trusting Him anyway:

He never leaves me.

Even on the rainy days.

The aching of this life has revealed a greater thirst than this world can satisfy.

Thankful today, for the sunny days and the rainy ones.

I have not heard that song for years. When I started reading it, I broke out into song. Sang the entire song with the chorus each time.
Rained here in the night, so it was easy to relate. Have a great day. Think of you often.
