Rain As I Wait


Rain as I wait.
Grey.
Slow.
Drenching my mind
Soaking my soul.

Rain as I wait.
Dribbling.
Warm.
Summertime promise
Peace through the storm.

Rain as I wait.
Heart.
Mind.
Bathed in God’s goodness
A rainbow His sign.

Rain as I wait.
Struggle.
Yearn.
Hope born in dreamland
In darkness we learn.

Rain as I wait.
Peace.
Grace.
Moved by His power
Lost in His face.

Rain as I wait.
Teach.
Find.
The Healer, our Helper
Our Savior, divine.

Wait.

  2. This is truly lovely. And you illustrated it perfectly with the photo of the rain falling through the hands.

  3. amen. Lovely poem, Michaeala. It's a great reminder for those who are more impatient than some. Myself included. ;)

    Take care, and hope you have a great day!
