Bring the Rain

Something happened on Friday - - something that was so clearly God in my life. Almost physically in my such a way, I was brought to tears. Many times in my life I have seen Him and felt Him.....but Friday - - what a day. I won't go in to detail just yet, I want to take the time to put it in the words and praise it deserves. But no worries....I am being taken care of and I have my struggles, but ultimately know God is good and my life is in his hands!!! Right now there is a song I listen to over and over again that could be speaking about my life, almost word for word......I want to share it. So, "If that's what it takes to praise you, Jesus bring the rain!"

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain
I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray
Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
