I will wait for you like the dry earth waits for the rain–eager to feel your presence wash over my thirsty soul. First come the drops, just a sprinkle that hints of the coming flood. And before I know it, my hands lifted high in praise are catching the overflowing rain.
Rain Down On My Thirsty Soul
by Patricia Bankhead
O God, my God, Everything to me Thou art
You are the Light that shines in my heart
For more of You my soul does pant
Hear my petition Lord and please grant
My soul longs for more of You, O Lord
Living without You I can not afford
Your love is more precious than life itself
Just give me more of You, nothing else
You are the only One who can satisfy
The only One that my soul magnifies
I am standing with my arms opened wide
Longing for more of You on the inside
Come now Lord, please don't delay
Rain down on my thirsty soul today
"As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
so panteth my soul after thee, O God."
This is a Beautiful anointed work of Art and a Beautiful anointed poem that reads like a prayer!Great combination to bless the eyes and the heart!
With Christian Love,
This is lovely and heart felt. I have a poem in my article entitled His touch which gives a picture of what happens without His Touch. By the way where do you get these great pictures?
Keep pouring out your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ. He will always respond to words like these.
What a wonderful picture! Your prayer for rain on your thirsty soul is refreshing for us all. Thanks for sharing this heart-felt prayer with us...Thanks for your comment on my Discussion with Casey article. I have been unable to be at the computer for quite awhile, so it is nice to be able to spend a bit of time this evening...Will try hard to read more of FW soon....Helen
Amen and Amen! There will never be a day when there is no room for more of You - especially when I don't keep You for myself and instead let Your Love flow from me to those You have sent to cross my path. Thank you my precious adoring Savior. To You be the glory and honor always (and blessings to your faithful servant, Patricia, too :) Jody
Oh how I've missed reading your poems. This poem excites me because I am thirsty for more of Him too. I just can't get enough! Everytime I am in His presence He gives me more and more. We must spend time in His presence daily. In any earthly relationship, the way to develop relationship with someone is to spend time with them. We need to pour out our hearts before Him, sharing the most intimate details of our lives, our hopes, our dreams and our very heart with Him. He needs to be number one in our lives, above all others, and above all else.
