Jesus, Bring The Rain

I haven't blogged at all this week I realize and it's because we're having to adjust to a new schedule in our home as Kevin started his part-time evening job and the kids and I are having to get used to him not being here. It's not as though we do much during the weekday evenings but the kids have been asking "when will daddy be home" and I miss having him here to be part of the family routine. We have tried to explain a little bit about our situation to the kids and about why daddy has to work so much and we've tried our very best to assure them that all is well with their mommy and daddy but how do explain the economy and job loss to three children under the age of 6?

But, as something to give you all for stopping by and reading, I decided to give you the lyrics to one of my all-time favorite songs. This is one that I come back to time and time again when I'm hurting in life and the words comfort me. Just knowing that usually when you're walking through that storm in life, you can be assured that God is using it to strengthen you and prepare you for something better!

Bring the Rain
by 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 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
