i love to listen to the rain
i even love a good thunderstorm
it was during a stretch of all-day rains this past spring
that brought a revelation along with the soaking of the earth
through the storm
in the rain
i heard it sing
a sweet, bird-sung melody
a bird?
singing in the rain?
so strange
yet so beautiful
it reminds me of this quote from Emily Dickinson:
‘“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all ‘
there in the darkness
there in the valley
there in the hard days
hope is there
singing to the sweet melody of God’s promise
‘I am with you always’
– Matthew 28:20
this storm will not crush you
it will make you stronger
it will draw you closer
to the great I Am
to the One who saves
the One who loves
‘those who hope in me will not be disappointed’
Isaiah 49:23
listen for it
hope is singing
hope is there
no matter what you are going through
He is with you
and He will not disappoint
