On a rainy day, we tend to become melancholy or sad. All we need to do is turn to God in prayer. In His mercy He will hear your voice and He will act on your requests. It’s already been done.
ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Arms raised, reaching up to heaven,
Pleading for forgiveness, longing for deliverance,
Eyes surveying heaven’s darkest recesses,
Mind in turmoil, pain and agony,
Out of the depths I cry to you, oh, Lord,
Release me from the sin that clings to me,
The weight of those transgressions rests on burdened shoulders,
The sting of death pierces his side,
He dies taking every sin to the grave,
Death is swallowed in victory.
My tears fall no more, except for tears of joy,
My arms rise to heaven again,
This time in grateful thanksgiving,
My deliverance has come and the darkness remains no more,
No more pain or turmoil –
The agony died on a cross with my Savior,
My sin lies in ashes and are forgiven,
No more will I fear death or hell,
The price has been paid, the ransom fulfilled,
Eternal life waits and I have reason to look forward to it.
