Encouraging my Heart...

Every now and then, a song makes me stop, listen and weep...

God is so good. Even in the rain...


Bring the Rain

Mercy Me

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 clouds that may
loom above because you are much greater than
my pain you who made a way for me suffering
your destiny so tell me whats a little rain

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God almighty
is the Lord God almighty
I'm forever singing...

everybody singing...
Holy holy holy
You are holy
You are holy

What an expanse of experiences on your post about friends--thank you for the reflections, pictures, song video, and poem. I spent years reading Theophane the Recluse, and so I really appreciate the quote by him.
