Rain

I was reminded today of a poem I wrote a few years ago about God's forgiveness. This jolt in my memory came from a facebook post from author Lysa Terkeurst.  It said, " His Truth won't leave you even when your gut honest cries don't sound so Christian." After I read this I chuckled. The small laughter came not because it was funny but because I could see myself in that sentence. None of us are perfect and if you're at all like me, you may find yourself in a few "not so stellar Christian moments," from time to time. But God's love is so amazing; He still washes away those moments and replaces them with His warmth and love. He uses those washed away moments as an opportunity to reveal something great in us.
Rain
 I’m taking a journey through the eyes of God
As He observes the chaos on His earth
I feel the pain
As He watches in disappointment,
His children harming another.
I begin to feel water rush
As each single tear falls from His tired eyes
The rain pours down from the windows of Heaven
And washes away our iniquity.
I feel His tears begin to recede,
Like a tide pulling from the shores of existence.
I begin to feel a warm presence of love
Radiate from His forgiving heart,
Drying the remaining puddles of our sins.
I feel at peace as I see His promise of tomorrow
Shining its colors in His luminous sky.
