About 20 minutes before I arrived at the conference center, the sky opened up and it rained hard. Ironically, I was jamming to Phil Collins. Of all the songs I enjoy by him, the song playing was I Wish It Would Rain Down.
I guess I got my wish.
It struck me that listening to a song wishing for rain, while driving in the rain, is like continuing to ask for blessings from God while being blessed. It's ironic.
I habitually pray for safety, while living in a world behind locked doors. I pray for peace and rest, in my life of leisure. I pray for God to provide, while having seconds of my favorite meal. I ask for more in a world that has everything I need or want everywhere I turn.
Perhaps we should spend a bit more time thanking God, instead of asking for more of what we already have.
