Listening for the Rain

Original song by Deanna Freeman adapted from Hosea 6:1-3

“Come, let us return to the LORD.  For He has torn us, and He will heal us, He has wounded us, and He will bind up our wounds.  He will revive us after two days, and on the third day He will raise us up so we can live in His presence.  Let us strive to know the LORD.  His appearance is as sure as the dawn.  He will come to us like the rain, like the spring showers that water the land.”

A prayer for the movement of God among His people:

Dry and dusty; hard as stone
My heart feels so alone.
As I fall to my knees,
Pleading for Your peace to come,
O Lord, please come!
And shower over me with Your grace,
I turn my eyes to Heaven and seek Your face.

I’m listening for the rain, to hear it’s sweet sound
The power of Heaven coming down
As my heart turns to You, may Your spirit surround
I’m listening for the rain to come down,
Listening for the rain…

Together we come to, call on You
Forgive us, we pray.
Revive us, refresh us, restore us anew,
To live – Your way.
We earnestly wait for You to move,
For all will be in vain apart from You!

We’re listening for the rain, to hear it’s sweet sound,
The power of Heaven coming down.
As our hearts turn to You, may Your Spirit surround,
We’re listening for the rain to come down,
Listening for the rain…

It’s here, it falls, it soothes and it calls.
It’s here, it falls, it soothes and it calls.
It’s here, it falls, it soothes and it calls.
He’s here, He falls, He soothes and He calls.

Listening for the rain, to hear it’s sweet sound,
The power of Heaven coming down.
As our hearts turn to You, may Your Spirit surround,
We’re listening for the rain…

Listening for the rain, to hear it’s sweet sound,
The power of Heaven coming down.
As our hearts turn to You, may Your Spirit surround,
We’re listening for the rain to come down,
Listening for the rain…

Psalm 32: 1,11 – JOY!

How joyful,
How joyful,
How joyful is;
The one whose
Transgressions
Have been forgiven!

Whose sin is covered,
Whose sin is covered,
Whose sin is covered,
How joyful is the one!

Thank you, Father, for sending Your son;
Thank you, Jesus, for the work you have done;
And thank you, Spirit, for leading our souls to the cross.

Be glad,
Be glad,
Be glad in the Lord;
Rejoice,
You righteous ones
And shout for joy!!!

Your sin is covered,
Your sin is covered,
Your sin is covered,
How joyful is the one!

Follow Me – Luke 9:23-24

It’s not that I don’t want to trust You
It’s not that I don’t want to believe
But I have questions and Your only answer is
“Follow me, follow me”

It’s not that I want to be unfaithful
For I still believe You meet my needs
But I have questions and Your only answer is
“Follow me, follow me”

You say, follow me on the path of suffering
It is there that you will truly find my peace
Deny yourself, take up your cross and
Let this journey lead you to My feet; follow me

I know that one day my faith will become sight
And all my questions will be set free
There in Your presence, I will hear You say
You followed me, you followed me
