5-1-23 Pastor’s Note

“April showers bring May flowers.”  This truthful phrase is a popular saying used often during the month of April, because it seems to rain quite a bit.  This is a new season, as temperatures begin to climb, that all this rain is washing away all the accumulated dirt and debris from the snow that has melted away.  Not only that, but the increased rain shower activity shows the signs of flowers and plants really starting to bloom.  

This little phrase, “April showers brings May flowers”, is something I say to remind me that while it is raining, May flowers are coming, due to the rain. I am speaking with an assurance that the rain is necessary to allow new flowers to blossom and grow.  

Water, rain showers is absolutely essential to bring about new life in the spring time. It is the rain showers that we need to be able to sustain the natural, our crops, our lawns and our gardens.  Without the showers, there would be no flowers.  

In the spiritual sense, we need the showers of the Lord to rain down on us. This is what will sustain us while we go through seasons of our own life. Just like nature, we go through seasons and the winter seasons of life can be challenging, and we need the showers to wash us and refresh us again.  

Ezekiel 34:26 says, “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.”

We need the showers of blessings from God to water our soul to help us to grow.  ‭

The old hymnal reminds us of His blessings.  There shall be showers of blessing: This is the promise of love; There shall be seasons refreshing, Sent from the Savior above.  Showers of blessing, Showers of blessing we need; Mercy-drops round us are falling, But for the showers we plead.
