the same God, who brought the sunshine, is same One who brings rain.

so let it rain if You want. You are God &I am not.
let it rain down on me, every day. whatever You want, let it rain down on me.

genesis 8:21 -22: the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma (from Noah's burnt offering sacrifice) &said in his heart: "never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. &never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done. as long as the earth endures, seedtime &harvest, cold &heat, summer &winter, day &night will never cease."

if there are words for Him then, I don't have them. you see my brain has not yet reached a point where it could form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God. &my voice is so inhibited, restrained by human limits, that it's hard to even sing a praise up. my God: unsearchable yet knowable. indefinable, yet approachable. indescribable, yet personal.
when the world shook &the sun was wiped out of heaven, it was not at the crucifixion, but at the cry from cross: the cry which confessed that God was forsaken of God (Matt: 27:46) &now let the revolutionists choose a creed from all creeds &a god from all gods of the world, carefully weighing all gods of inevitable recurrence &of unalterable power. they will not find another god who has himself been in revolt. nay (the matter grows too difficult for human speech), but let the atheists themselves choose a god. they will find only 1 divinity who ever uttered their isolation; only 1 religion in which God seemed for an instant to be an atheist. -GKC. †
