Walk in the rain that turned to storm Some avoided this morning’s norm No one out; the metropolis quiet because of pounding rain, but we desire it.
Why out in the rain and not at home? Did we not get the memo, stay out of the storm? We knew the report, but we wanted to worship So off in the rain we went to the church house.
Why walk in the rain when you could drive? We couldn’t drive in our situation at this time. Maybe a taxi, but it didn’t come to mind, so off in the rain our hearts sublime.
The destination worth it, the puddles unavoidable Around each one we tried but wet was our stride The pastor made comment of the weather amid, “…also, a wonderful, dry room to worship in.”
How grateful he was and so were we If work had called, we’d on time be. So why miss assembly and worship a tree Yes, a storm is on us, but we are free.
With lungs to breathe air, and eyes to see, ears to hear tapping of wet moisture on me It seemed such joy to be able to worship A little rain, or a lot was not to disturb us.
Never should keep us from gathering or deter So go to church, and be on time as it were. A privilege that not all in the world can embrace Be a Jesus freak, run and stay in the race.
The worshiping assembly is a joy of the Kingdom. Make it a habit but not an agenda. Don’t be one of those with no good reason Go to church, worship Jesus, and live life in season.
24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25
