Let The Rain Reign In Its Season

05 Mar

The day became night and the sun took to flight
Claps of thunder, rumbling as the cloud gets darker
Parents calling out to children up and about
The scramble for shelter as rain drops begin to patter

She walks calmly with no urgency
The rain pours on her, her blouse
Silk hugging her skin, her frame thin
Yet she walks calmly with no urgency

Doors closed, the ground hosed
The smell of dust and wind mingle as one
She gives no heed as the rain sips through
And travels down to her pants, edges soaked in puddle
She walks calmly with no urgency

Her calmness seems to taunt the rains
Her smile at the overflow of the drains
The streets almost submerged, fields gone
Roads no longer identifiable as separate from the gutters
Yet, she walks calmly, pushing through the sludge

And then the rains stops, clouds clear
The sun steps out proud, bright, radiant
She hastens, trots and then runs, laughing out loud
Screams of joy bubbles forth from her
Merriness becomes her name

Hear this,

As we go through this journey called life
Tempted we may be to avoid strife
But like the rain that comes without warning
Problems towards us may come swarming
Our hearts scream hurry, run
But it’s better to wait till it’s done

The clouds of life have their place
Dark and wild they threaten us to disgrace
If we believe, they’re just a phase.
In every case,
If trials have their work complete
With joy and peace we’ll be replete

As sure as day turns to night
And darkness to light
So sure will the clouds and the rain
Give way and let the sun reign
And then shall we skip and trot and run
And find joy that’s second to none.

Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything~James 1:14 NIV

    A message of encouragement to those going through turbulence. Good message. One or two typos need cleaning up – eg line 3 2nd stanza, line 1, 4th stanza
