Reservoirs of our Souls

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 on 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 you send brings with it new beginnings.
Many inconveniences come and plans alter due to rainy days.
Yet, rain is refreshing. We see this when we take the time to reflect.
When we are patient with you.
Each pitter patter and pounding drop calling us.
Calling us to quieter more reflective thoughts and 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 especially 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
