As Showers Upon New Grass
by Kim Stewart on January 18th, 2016

Do you ever hear a song on the radio and it just takes you right back to a happy place in time? For me that’s 80’s music. High School days.

“Don’t Stop Believin”….
“Livin’ On A Prayer”…
“Don’t You…Forget About Me” …

I can remember every word to those songs. They instantly put a smile on my face as memories come rushing back.

Songs. Easily learned and remembered.

No wonder Moses chose a song to share his final message to the children of Israel so many years ago about the character of God:
Hear, heavens, and I will speak!
Listen, earth, to the words of my mouth!
May my instructions descend like rain
and may my words flow like dew,
as light rain upon the grass,
and as showers upon new plants.
For I’ll proclaim the name of our LORD.
Ascribe greatness to our God!

Deuteronomy 32:1-3

Moses’ song goes on to remind them to learn from their mistakes. To trust God. To respect God’s Word and obey it.

Easier said than done for this girl who tends to stuff and hide.

Stop hiding and start seeking.

But seeking God and His Word doesn’t come easy for me. 

Thankfully I’ve discovered a new resource that I think will make all the difference in the world to me:  I Know His Name, a new Bible study by Wendy Blight.
Wendy writes:

​“It’s not about increasing our head knowledge.
We are studying God’s Word so that we can know Him better
and so that God can change our hearts and our lives!”

​Let’s seek God and allow his Word to descend like rain, and to flow like dew.

“I love a rainy night...."

"Yes, I love a rainy night"...oh what a crush I had on Eddie Rabbitt. And, I know that this study by Wendy is going to increase my crush on GOD! I can't wait to begin this with my community.

Thanks for sharing today, Kim

Thanks for sharing about Wendy's study. I was struck last week in the #LifeShakingWord study that KNOWing God is our goal and our reward. And I'm with you girl. Love that music. For me it goes back further, late 60's and 70's. Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney were already singing when I was in the cradle, but I liked retro music as a high schooler. (And so do my kids, so that makes for double fun.)

Oh Betsy, love all the same music!
