Into Each Life
So loud the sound of thunder;
So bright the flashes of light.
The winds are high, flailing the trees;
It will rain throughout the night.
I think, "At least the rain is needed;
The soil is parched and dry.
My heart longs for the beauty of flowers,
And billowy soft clouds in the sky".
Then GOD spoke
In HIS soft, quiet way,
"You know rain must fall in your life,
To enrich your soul today".
The winds of the HOLY SPIRIT
Waft gently against my heart.
HIS words fall softly on my ears,
"From you, I will never depart".
Soon, HIS strength begins to flow,
Moistening my soul's roots with HIS love.
Strong and healthy, new stems appear;
Born upward to THE LIGHT above.
The new stems leaf and blossom;
HE knows the amount of rain needed.
Fruit will follow, blessed and holy,
Because we heard and HIS WORD heeded.
So praise GOD for the storms and rain
That HE sends with love to your soul.
HIS desire is that we truly know HIM;
Through HIS SON, we blossom.
We're made whole.
