It's raining, it's pouring the old man is snoring!!!

Do you remember that little childhood song?  Well, that's what it is doing here today.  Raining and pouring!  It rained Saturday, it poured yesterday, it poured and stormed last night, and it's raining right now.

It has even washed a gully in our garden (BOO!).  Oh well, the Lord sends the rain, so I am thankful for it today.

And when I think of rain, I think of showers of blessings!  What a beautiful old hymn, and a precious reminder that our blessings do come from above.  And I believe that God does want to bless us.  He never promised everything would be easy, but He did promise to be with us, especially when the rain falls and the storms of life rage. 

Cast all your cares on Him.  No matter WHAT is going on in your life (and right now I have something going on in my family) TRUST HIM to be BIGGER than the problem.  Do it today!  Don't hold on to something you have no control over.  Lay it at His feet and then give him PRAISE for sending His answer.

This post began about a rainy day, so I don't know why it turned into a small devotional.  But somebody out there in blog land needed to be reminded of this today.  And maybe I just needed to write down what is in my heart.  Maybe I am the one that needed the reminder.

So right now I am laying down the storm in my life.  And I am praising God that in Him, we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS!!!

Let the storms rage.  I belong to Him!!!


  1. We don't get much rain here in Arizona, so when it comes it is truly a blessing. And even if it doesn't rain, God does indeed bless. I wonder how many of His blessings we miss because we're not watching? Thanks for the gentle reminder to take note.

  2. Nicely written! I never complain about actual rain though :)
