Open the Heavens

“Open the heavens. Come Living Water. All my fountains are in You.” 
– lyrics from "All My Fountains" by Chris Tomlin

I was singing this as the buckets caught the drips in our bedroom from the 2-4 inches of rainfall last Sunday evening. My Spirit wasn’t worried over the leaky roof, as it would have been in the past. No, instead, the rain made me sing “All My Fountains”. Even the song from church that morning was “Open Up the Heavens” by Meredith Andrews about floodgates and mighty rivers. I went to sleep to the sweet sound of drip, drip, drip – a message from My Heavenly Father. I will praise You in this storm.

Soak me, Father in Your Living Water. Flood me with You and let You flow out and over and down in a Holy Flood of Your Glory!

Do you have something in your life that should worry you, but instead you are praising God?


  1. Sometimes I find myself praising God in the midst of what would seem like something more to be lamented, and other times, I can be such a whiny baby. Praying for a "Praise-God-in-the-storm-attitude! Missing you, my friend!

    1. I hear you, Pam. I thought it was odd at the time that I was singing as the rain fell into the buckets.


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
