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

The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

 Psalm 27: 1,5


run to Him,dear  friends

dwell there,
