Some of you may or may not know about my son, Brian, who was tragically killed August 13, 2005. That day will remain with me for as long as I live.
Well, I recently had the opportunity to go to the Mercy Me concert in Jackson. WOW!!! That's all I can say...WOW!!
They have a song I love...well I love all of their songs, but one spoke to me and I wanted to share the lyrics with you:
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 day
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 what's a little rain?
