LIF - Praise You in this Storm

See my last 2 posts for the context of this song...it has had a powerful effect on me this week.

Praise You in this Storm

I was sure by now
That 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 You 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

I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
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

I remember whenI stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You
As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You 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

I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
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

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth
Casting Crowns

I heard this song 2 months ago and have the lyrics hanging in my office. it literally changed my life.I will praise God no matter where I am because His love for me never changes.
"You are who are no matter where I am"

I have enjoyed your writings even though I have only responded once. I have thought about the previous two postings. I decided that everything before were I am now was a series of events to escape from pain. Sex, drugs, alcohol, bouncing around from place to place......I stayed in a constant change.

I am without doubt the most blessed I have ever been in my entire life right now.

It seems ironic that now is the time I fear change the most. The thoughts creep in out of nowhere. Memories from my past blast forward and create what if senerios that if alowed produce mighty fear.

"I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth".
AMEN!

Incedently, I saw Casting Crowns a couple times. There just great!
