Storms In Life ....

I have been struggling a lot these past few months, feeling as if storms are coming and coming and coming .... pounding away on all sides. Through these storms, this song has meant so much to me. The storms have yet to subside, but I know that my Loving Father is beside me, with every tear in His loving hands, guiding my steps one by one. And I praise Him ....

I hope these lyrics encourage you as well.

I was sure by now, God,
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.
Chorus:
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
I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone
how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and 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
Chorus
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth
Chorus
Praise You in This Storm

We will pray for you to make it through these storms! The image of Divine Mercy helps me through times like these, "Jesus, I trust in You!" (which is abundantly clear from your writings that you certainly do!)

Blessings,
Kris
