Bring the Rain!

    When they first found my tumor during an ultrasound they were pretty sure it was benign, even though I had a feeling that it was more than that.  However, after my surgery, when I went in for my post-operation visit with my gyn-oncologist, she informed me it was more than that and was referring me to the gyn-oncologist who assisted her during the surgery.  Even though I expected it, the news stunned me and I walked out to our car not wanting to believe it.  Norm turned on the car radio and this song came on.  As soon as I heard it, I burst into tears.

     The song was written when the group was going through some tough times but it resonates with so many people also experiencing rough seasons of their own.  One of the things that I kept asking God was ,”Why me, God?” God responded almost immediately, “Why not you?”  He was right.  There were so many other people in the world who were experiencing disease, loss, financial ruin, etc.  Who was I to think something like this couldn’t-shouldn’t happen to me?  That was when I had to learn to say, “But if that’s what it takes to praise You, Jesus, bring the rain!”

 

Bring The Rain
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 prayBring 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
