Spring Rain

By Susie Teramura


 You know

The words

I need to hear,

The ones

That fall

Like a gentle

Spring rain,

Collecting in

The gutters of my soul,

Traveling down

And dropping into

My dry places

My cracks,

Places hard,

And thirsty,



So I wait,

In the morning quiet,


To hear

From You, for

You speak

A better word,

A word that

Brings life,

And hope,

And peace.


And gently words


In puddles,

Soaking slow

Into deep places,

And like a precious

Fragrant oil

Your words coat

My soul,

Healing me,

And making me whole.


Psalm 119:103

How sweet are your words to my taste,

sweeter than honey to my mouth!


Proverbs 16:24

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.


Isaiah 58:8

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.


Psalm 30:2

Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.

  1. Beautiful. Simply beautiful. I feel like I was pour over with His oil of gladness as I read your words Susie.

  2. Susie,
    I love it when God is drawing my attention to something — this is the second time today I read the verse, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey . .. ” I want to fill up my mind with his words so those are the ones swirling through my mind today! How right you are when our souls are filled up with his words, they coat us, heal us and make us whole. Simply beautiful!

    1. Yes I want so badly His thoughts to be there mostly instead of intermittently! Guess it is practice and a learned habit too? -So glad to know the He is speaking to your heart today. Happy to connect with you today!! always a treasure- 🙂
