Bring the Rain

It's not news that my family has and is going through really tough times right now. Somebody came up to me the other day and asked me, "Cristin, how are you still smiling and moving forward?" My answer, "faith." It really is that simple, my friends. I've talked about it before in previous blogs. I will admit, I'm the epitome of optimistic. I can't see the worst in people, I can't see the worst in situations, I can't see the worst in life. I will tell you though, it get's me in trouble at times. Being too optimistic gives others a chance to take advantage of you, but that's beside the point. The point I'm trying to make is that no matter the storm, I'm not giving anything or anyone the power to take away my faith. It's my lifeline.

As I was thinking about what I would write on my blog today, a song came to my mind. I often find songs to relate to how I'm feeling and this particular song just reached my heart. I'm sure you've all heard it, but if you haven't, take a minute to listen to the words. It's powerful!

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 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
