Jesus, Bring the Rain

After a week of rain the blue skies in East Tennessee were amazing this weekend.

Rain can be gloomy and storms can destroy. But rain makes things grow. Rain nourishes. Rain strengthens. Rain brings new life. Rain brings rainbows and reminders of God’s promises.

What if we began to see the rainy situations in life the same way?

The difficult relationship? The hard work situation? The physical ailment? The prodigal child?

What if we saw those rainy situations as God’s means for growth and bringing new life? We need the rainy situations in life just like the flowers need the rain. What if we changed our perspective and learned to be thankful?

“The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” Matthew 7:25

What is your foundation built upon?

Two Rain Songs Ministering to My Heart

Bring the Rain by Mercy Me

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I’ve gone through

The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You

Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It’s never really ever crossed my mind

To turn my back on You, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times

So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory

And I know there’ll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

I am yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain

So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings you glory

And I know there’ll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Is the Lord God Almighty

And I forever sing
Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Is the Lord God Almighty

Everybody sing it
Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Is the Lord God Almighty

You are holy, You are holy
Lord, You are holy
Is the Lord our God
Is the Lord our God Almighty, yeah, yeah, yeah

Everybody sing it
Holy, You are holy
Oh, holy, holy, holy, yeah, yeah, yeah
Is the Lord God Almighty
Is the Lord God Almighty, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Is the Lord God Almighty

There is a  Cloud by Bethel Music

Hear the Word, roaring as thunder
With a new, future to tell
For the dry, season is over
There is a cloud, beginning to swellTo the skies, heavy with blessing
Lift your eyes, offer your heart
Jesus Christ, opened the Heavens
Now we receive, the Spirit of GodWe receive Your rain
We receive Your rainEvery seed, buried in sorrow
You will call, forth in its time
You are Lord, Lord of the harvest
Calling our hope, now to ariseWe receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rainLike a flood; like a flood
We receive Your love
When You comeLike a flood; like a flood
We receive Your love
When You come

Like a flood; like a flood
We receive Your love
When You come

Like a flood; like a flood
We receive Your love!

And with great, anticipation
We await, the Promise to come
Everything, that You have spoken
Will come to pass, let it be done!

We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain

Ohh-ohh-ohhh, ohh-ohhh, ohh-ohhh
Ohh-ohh-ohhh, ohh-ohhh, ohh-ohhh…
