Song Showers of Blessings

Mercy Drops

To some it probably seems somewhat amazing that we continue to receive some
many blessings from God.

There is an old song titled, "Showers of Blessings," based on the scripture
from Ezekiel 34:26 "And I will make them and the places round about my hill
a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there
shall be showers of blessing."

I don't remember the last time I heard the song sung, I don't think it is
in our present songbooks. One of the lines went like this, "Mercy drops
round us are falling, yet for the showers we plead." One of the reasons I
remember the song so vividly is that my Grandmother Eliza Lawson refused to
sing the song. She said she didn't believe the words were right. She said
that; "God didn't scrimp with His people and only give little drops of
mercy, he showered us with it all the time."

I have to agree with Grandma, God does shower us with blessings all the
time; it's just that we don't often take time to see them. Because of that I
wanted to take some time here to remind us to look at our blessings and
those who bring them to us.

Perhaps it would be good for you to stop sometime during your busy day and
offer a special prayer of thanksgiving for these people through whom God
blesses us. I know it takes time, but drop them a note of encouragement and
thanks, be a blessing to them.

We need to remember also how God answers our prayers. So many times we share
with others our special need for prayer. Perhaps for those who are sick,
hurting or dealing with problems in their lives. Do you ever stop to think
about how many times our prayers are answered? Stop and think about the
outcome of those prayer requests we have made in the past. Perhaps it was
someone whom you have heard about and prayed for. They may not all have been
answered as we would have liked, but God is at work through the prayers and
caring of us here on his world.

Yes, God is alive and working in our world and we are the ones who have his
ear through our prayers, don't forget that.. Ever!

Showers of blessings? Yes! I believe so!
