Praising in the Storm.
Paul and I have been going through some things this past week that have not been easy. Sometimes life gives you a lesson that seems really unfair to have to learn. We have been doing a lot of praying and trying to make sure that our thoughts and reactions are praising God for what we DO have.. not what we may have to GIVE UP.
I don't know why it seems like problems get dumped on you while others may never feel what you have to go through, but I know I'm not in Job's position. At least I have a darling little home, I have my handsome, hard working husband, and I have 2 beautiful, fun loving babies to keep me company. Not to mention a third little bundle of joy in October-November.
I think Casting Crown's song Praise You In This Storm fits perfectly to how Paul and I feel -- and probably a lot more people out there right now!
I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining
As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away
And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm
God is so good to His children. Life is unfair sometimes, but it makes me forward to Heaven that much more. No more sorrow. No more pain. No more feeling desperate.
No matter what you're going through today, remember to always praise the Lord through your storm! Rejoice in hope. Continue in tribulation. Continue instant in prayer!
