Rain Down On Me…

It’s raining in Pennsylvania. Not the thunder and lightning kind of rain, but the pouring down from the heavens, soaking rain. I’ve just come in from it, my shirt and arms are still wet. Cool, refreshing wet. I needed that moment.

I needed it to remind me of how I need God’s mercies. How I need to cry to Him to refresh my soul.

I needed it at a time when I was letting my mind get so caught up in self, that I couldn’t seem to think straight. Don’t we all come to times of “why me?” or “I can’t take one more thing!”? Too often my wheels get to spinning trying to figure out life, when what I really need is to look above. He will guide each step I take.

When there are days like today, days on which I absolutely don’t know what my next step will be, how can I have forgotten?

The Lord will rain down His mercies on me. He is my source and provider. He is my rock and shield. He is the light to my path. And He loves me so much, He will remind me with His refreshing rain.

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
