in the downpour

Really?
Really?
I know. I know.
When it rains it pours.
And even though we don’t believe You, our God,
cause it—
intend it—
will it,
it’s still You to whom we turn within it—
turning to you in utter disbelief
at this downpour in which we find ourselves—
praying for what peace there is to find,
for what assurance there is to claim,
for what rest there is to be had,
for what strength we need to just make it through—
in the name of Jesus,
amen.
