Showers of Blessing

In case you don't know it, I am of all people blessed! My life is not trouble free. On the contrary, at this moment, I am overwhelmed, unable to do well all that needs doing, tempted to worry, at risk of being fired from a couple of friendships due to neglect, and a fairly poor excuse for a wife and mother. BUT I serve a God who knows what is best for me. He uses ALL things for my good, whether I like them or not. How blessed I am to know that my God is looking out for me and carving out a good path for my stumbling feet.

Here are some things I am thankful for that are working for good in my life.
  1. Disobedient children.
  2. Sickness
  3. Disability
  4. Not enough time or strength to get my work all done
  5. Stretch marks
  6. Old worn out vehicles
  7. People who attack for no reason
  8. Weariness
  9. Worn out floors and porches
  10. High prices of food, fuel, etc.
This is the song that I was singing in my sleep last night. When I awoke, it was raining hard for the first time in a couple of months.

There shall be showers of blessing:


This is the promise of love;

There shall be seasons refreshing,

Sent from the Savior above.

Refrain:

Showers of blessing,

Showers of blessing we need:

Mercy-drops round us are falling,

But for the showers we plead.

There shall be showers of blessing,

Precious reviving again;

Over the hills and the valleys,

Sound of abundance of rain.

There shall be showers of blessing;

Send them upon us, O Lord;

Grant to us now a refreshing,

Come, and now honor Thy Word.

There shall be showers of blessing:

Oh, that today they might fall,

Now as to God we’re confessing,

Now as on Jesus we call!

There shall be showers of blessing,

If we but trust and obey;

There shall be seasons refreshing,

If we let God have His way.


I pray that your day is blessed!
