Grace Like Rain
“And Hallelujah, Grace like rain falls down on me”The first time I heard these lyrics, there was a three-fold reaction, heartbreak, surrender, and belief. To be honest, I couldn’t even tell you which one came first. It was the moment I become acutely aware of my sinful nature, the Lord’s love, and God’s willingness to show me the grace I did not deserve. Somewhere there had to be knowledge of these things when I gave my life to the Lord, but the understanding of these things became so much more clear when I heard this song. I have struggled most of my Christian walk to fall in line with the rest of the Body of Christ. There was always this thought that I could never be as “good” as them. I didn’t realize that I had been trying to live down a reputation that haunted me for years. I wanted so badly to be “good” and have a reputation that was fitting of a good Christian woman. The thought was, to fit in with them, I had to be like them, and I wasn’t.
“And Hallelujah, my stains are washed away”
“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me”
And then…. Grace Like Rain
