Bring the Rain

A few days ago (when I posted tears and prayers) I had been going through our CD's when I came across a CD my Mom had given me months ago. I had put it with my other CD's and then forgot about it, which is surprising to me because it was a CD of Mercy Me songs and I really enjoy them. A title to one of the songs caught my eye and I played it. I had not heard the song and it was so beautiful and spoke to me so clearly. The very next day I checked a friends blog that I had lost the link to and then just discovered again and would you believe that she had posted a video with this very same song? God's so cool! So anyways I've been playing it over and over again and love it everytime. There is a video with the song just below this post if you would like to see and hear it. Here are the words of the song that I feel like puts perfectly in to words what my heart is crying out to God:

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
