Life-Giving Rain

Life-Giving Rain

There is a place where no rain falls:
The desert: barren, dead.
So don’t let storms of life leave you
To cower in your bed.
The rain can be life-giving if
You’ll only drink it in.
So let the living water wash
You clean from all your sin.
Remember it is only rain
That makes the rainbow shine
When light is shining through the gloom.
It is God’s lovely sign,
Reminding us He’s always near
No matter how we feel.
So look to Him for light and see
The bow as His great seal.
He promised He would not forsake
Nor leave us on our own.
So just dance in the pouring rain
And marvel how you’ve grown.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
