Let it rain!

rpcdcvrmodThree times in 2 days, it has rained when there were blue skies overhead. It first happened to Karen and I when we went out for lunch yesterday and the Lord treated us to a brilliant rainbow and a pair of eagles riding on a thermal in the distance. God simply wowed us!

I’m certain there’s a rational explanation for the rain here in what airline pilots call the “blue hole” on the northern flanks of the Olympic mountain range. But who cares about being rational! Our hearts are swelling with love for God and appreciation for the beauty and wonder of His creation!

So I’m interpreting the experience as a “song request” from the Almighty and an opportunity to share our hope and joy!

Let it Rain … Let it Rain
He reigns … He reigns
With resurrection power
From the throne of God
He’s calling forth the dead
In this final hour
Let it rain … Let it rain

*(LET IT RAIN! is the chorus only from the longer song, RESURRECTION POWER below).

 

RESURRECTION POWER (8:59)

Heart in hand – a father prays
For a son – who’s gone astray
Laying siege – to God’s throne
One request “Lord, bring him home”
And he waits – he waits

On her knees – a woman crawls
Final hope – she’s given all
Desperately – through crowds of men
Reaching out to touch His hem
And she prays – she prays

Slumbering saints with carnal minds
Amazing grace but still they’re blind
Touched by God then led away
Stripped and bound – religion’s prey
And they lie – in her grave

In the distance – a rumbling sound
Flash of light – advancing clouds
Swirling winds – the scent of rain
Barren lands made green again

Let it rain – let it rain
He reigns – He reigns

With resurrection power
From the throne of God
He’s calling forth the dead
In this final hour

Let it rain – let it rain
