Living Waters

Living Waters
Isaiah 55:1

Come ye to the waters,
the Living Waters of God.
The Waters bring new life;
you will thirst no more.

Come ye to the waters,
the Living Waters of God.
The Waters will restore –
make you anew.

Drink in goodness.
Drink in God’s love.
Drink in forgiveness.
Drink in God’s grace.
Drink in cleansing.
Drink in God’s hope.
Drink in renewal.
Drink in God’s peace.

Thirst no more.

Come ye to the waters,
the Living Waters of God.

Crimson Rain

The words to this poem started rolling around in my head early one morning. I was thinking about how the love and cleansing of Jesus’ love and forgiveness can be like a rain storm that washes away all of the impurities. Then the words Crimson Rain came to the forefront of my thoughts. The poem reminds me of how Christ will whisper in our ear that we are sinning and we must admit it and ask for forgiveness… and then the purification of rain…


Crimson Rain

In the distance
I can hear You
Rolling in
The approaching rain.
Flood my life now
I can feel You
Pouring in
The approaching rain.


In the distance
I can see You
Rolling in
The approaching rain.
Flood my life now
With Your power –
Pour on me
The approaching rain.


Rain on me.
Wash me clean.
Make me pure.
Open wide the flood gates
Of Your love.


Rain on me.
Overwhelm me,
Drown me,
Fill me,
Consume me
With Your
Crimson Rain.
