Reservoirs of our Souls

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

Holy Good and Gracious God,

I hear the rain pouring down

Showering the earth refreshing water for a thirsty land

Washing away cobwebs that confuse and clutter

Filling reservoirs for dry days that lie ahead

Changing the dry, brittle earth to a carpet of soft green

Pouring into streams to cause them to flow more steadily, more deeply

Our earth is thirsty for this rain

Hungry for change, and the promise in the rainbow that comes when the sun shines again

Each drop brings with it new beginnings

Many inconveniences come and plans alter due to rainy days

Yet rain is refreshing

Each pitter patter and pounding drop  calling us

To quieter, more reflective thoughts actions

We hunger and thirst for you, Lord

Listening to the rain, I hear you call my name

Calling me to thankfulness

Reminding me of your endless and incredible protection one rainy night

Yet, knowing the storms that may come could bring threat

And again remembering, that Lord, you will…

“…I will pour water on the thirsty land and streams on the dry ground; I will pour my spirit upon your descendants, and my blessings on your offspring.” Isaiah 44:3

We long for your Holy rain in our lives.

Thank you for pouring forth new mercies each day

Strength when anxious and afraid

Hope in the darkest night and strongest winds that sway us to and fro

Oh, Loving God, may we allow you to fill the reservoirs of our souls with your love that we may pour forth that same love to others.

You are mighty God who was, and is, and is to come. You will fill the reservoirs of our souls. You will bless abundantly more than we can imagine.

In the precious name of Jesus we pray,

Amen
