Bring On The Rain

For those of you who live iin Utah you will understand what I mean when I say we have had some strange weather lately. One minute it's raining like crazy and the next the sun is shining. It seems like my life has been pretty similar lately. One minute things are going well and the next it's raining. The good thing about it is that I know somewhere past all the dark clouds the sun is shining again. Thinking about this reminded me of a song I love by the christian band called Mercy Me. The song is called Bring The Rain. I love the message it teaches that many times it's through our rainy days our struggles and trials that we grow closer to God. If our lives were only filled with sunshine and no sorrow we wouldn't have chances to call upon Him for help and grow as we feel His love and comfort in our lives. If I had the choice to have a life full of sunny days and no problems or a life with rain and sunshine and more opportunities to turn to God. I would shout...Bring Me The Rain!! I'll list the lyrics below the video clip. Enjoy!

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 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
