Holy Spirit Rain Down

This has been such an emotional week.  I had the honor of attending a memorial service for a very special man last night.  Brother Fred Lackey was one of the greatest men of God I have ever met.  He was my pastor growing up and led me to Christ when I was just a little girl sitting in his wood paneled office.  He was a very special friend to my family for many many years and I can only imagine how many other people his life has touched and changed.  I was just in awe last night as hundreds of people that he has touched gathered together worshiping our Savior and praising our God for the hope we find in Him that we can have power over death.  I pray my life reflects Jesus as much as Brother Fred's did.

Also this week, a sweet little four year old has been fighting for life.  I was just told that they have decided to turn off the machines and there is nothing else they can do for her.  My heart aches for her parents and family and I just cannot even begin to imagine what they are going through.

Both of these events have reminded me how quickly things can change.  We are all appointed a time to die, whether it be when we are four or when we are eighty.  We are only given so many moments on this Earth.  I pray that I live every single one of those moments to the fullest.  So tonight, I am holding my babies a little longer, talking to my loved ones a little longer, and praising the Lord that this is just a temporary home.

If you don't have that hope in the Lord and in the Heaven he has prepared for his children, I pray that the Lord speaks to you and you follow your heart and let Him in.  He wants to save every single one of us.  I am not a preacher or a fancy writer, but I am a girl who sat down with her sweet pastor 20+ years ago and asked her Heavenly Father to come into her heart and save her from her sins so that I may have everlasting life in Christ.  I know that I can place my faith and hope in Him. He is my comforter in times of death and sadness.  My hope and my redeemer.

They sang "Holy Spirit Rain Down" at Brother Fred's service.  I love this song so much.  Oh how we need Him in these times. 

Holy Spirit, rain down, rain down
Oh, Comforter and Friend
How we need Your touch again


Holy Spirit, rain down, rain down

Let Your power fall
Let Your voice be heard
Come and change our hearts
As we stand on Your word


No eye has seen, no ear has heard
No mind can know what God has in store
Open up Heaven, open it wide
Over Your church and over our lives


Holy Spirit, rain down, rain down

Let Your power fall
Let Your voice be heard
Come and change our hearts
As we stand on Your word
Holy Spirit, Rain Down.
