You Bless Me Like Rain


Rain on Me, (image courtesy of cindrellaforever.blogspot.com)

You bless me like rain,
    drenching my life with Your love.
Drops of blessings all different and unique,
    watering every facet of my life.
No need for shelter from your blessings.
No, I flee my hiding place and I run to You.
My spiritual roots are saturated with Your love.
David said, "My cup overflows" (Psalm 23:5, NIV),
    and he's right!

When storms come, You send a rainbow!
When lightning strikes, You are my rod!
When strong winds blow, You are my shelter!

So rain on me Lord, as You see fit to do.
When Jesus washed the disciples feet,
    it was Peter who declared, "not just my feet..." (John 13:9)
You bless me with life eternal, but that wasn't enough.
You bless me with joy everlasting, but that wasn't enough.
You bless me with peace beyond all understanding,
    but that wasn't enough.
So rain on me Lord, with a love supreme.
You bless me like rain,
    showering Your love upon me!


I don't understand why You do this,
    but I realize You love me so much.
It's no wonder that John wrote:
"See what great love the Father
    has lavished on us...!
" (1 John 3:1, NIV)
I look at this love from every possible perspective,
    and yet I am humbled by such examples of
    concern, care, and consideration for me.
You watch over my life with the utmost concern!
You nurture me with unbridled care!
You light my path with loving consideration.

So rain on me Lord, as You see fit to do.
When Jesus washed the disciples feet,
    it was Peter who declared, "not my feet only"
You bless me with life eternal, but that wasn't enough.
You bless me with joy everlasting, but that wasn't enough.
You bless me with peace beyond all understanding,
    but that wasn't enough.
So rain on me Lord,
    with a love supreme.

This is beautiful...we have been praying for rain here during the drought, but this reminds me of a rain we need even more. Thank you.

We are being rained on tonight with a thunderstorm warning in play. And while we so desperately need the rain, I'd far rather have the Lord's rain. The times are blessed and draws me to worship. I'm praying with you for rain!

Enjoyed rain all night last night but am washed in God's rain until I feel undeservedly blessed. Great post. Thank you
