He Will Come to Us Like Rain

Lately I have felt the Lord revealing the importance of moments. Moments of joy, sadness, loneliness and all in between. So many of my moments are tangled in the mess that is full of things that are not real or true. Leaving my mind and heart hindered by an outpouring of anxiousness and sadness. The concept of moments has entered and left my mind over the past several weeks and today, as my toes explored the pure sand of Clearwater beach, growth was found.

It is the moments engulfed with anxious and destructive thinking that are the seconds of the day when my heart is no longer engaged in truth. In fact, it is engaged in everything but the truth. Our hearts dwell in the world and what it has to offer in present moments and I know I am subconsciously swept away into its depths. But these are the moments in which I need to be engaged. Each and every second in some unique way reveals the truth of our Creator. Today as my toes journeyed along the shoreline among what appeared to be thousands upon thousands of sea shells, God unveiled His tender mercies. Each and every one of them was intricately different and I found my heart engaged in that moment. Seeing that as sea shells, I am broken and my edges are jagged with affliction. But for me and every single one of us, this affliction will draw us closer to our Savior in moments when we stop and allow our hearts to be engaged.

Every morning the deep facets of my heart yearn and thirst for the new glimpses of Him and His tender peace, but I am filling my cup with things that are not true each moment I spend engaged with the world. This leads to those deep insecurities and destructive thoughts. My heart is learning and being transformed by the promise found in Hosea 6:3.

“He will come to us like the rain.”

I have found that in those moments when I seek the tender touch of the Lord He will never fail in meeting me. He will come to us like rain. In moments where our hearts are so strongly entangled by the world and we seek to “throw off everything that hinders” {Hebrews 12:1-3}, He showers us with His exact mercy. A mercy that refreshes the deepest pits of our hearts, revealing what is true in that moment.

Today just as those sea shells were broken, scattered and washed away, so is my heart. Even when we seek Him, our hearts are feeble, restless, and insecure. But He does not give His heart to us in pieces. His never changing, steadfast, ever-present hand touches our souls. His blessings in each moment every single day are a prevailing rain. May our hearts be engaged to see a glimpse of His eternal glory and seek to take the insecure thinking into captivity and into obedience of Christ. {2 Corinthians 5:10}. Then our hearts will experience a freedom of living each moment in the divinity of His splendor.

Unreserved, unrestrained
Your love is wild
Your love is wild for me
It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed
Your love is proud
To be seen with me

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Uncontrolled, uncontained
Your love is a fire
Burning bright for me
It’s not just a spark
It’s not just a flame
Your love is a light
That all the world will see
All the world will see
