Rainless Life

God has stirred in my soul through the weather lately.  I wrote this poem during a downpour…

Rainless life, what would it be?
It seems like such a joy to me.
Sunshine only, no clouds or gray
to make my life seem dark that day.

Rainless life, what would it be?
How would it write my own story?
Would depth of life be true at all,
Would Jesus’s name I cease to call?

No gushing river would rise to cross.
All colors of earth would sense a loss.
What green would I know without the rain,
What health would I know without the pain?

Creator of the rain, forgive all rainless desires inside;
for rain sent by You  reveals my soul and melts my foolish pride.
So Living Water, come in your storm and weaken me to the core,
for when I am weak I can be filled by You only more and more.
