I'm usually not one to post lyrics to songs.....

 but this song feels like it was written specifically for our family....


I'm sure you have heard it....
Praise You In This Storm by Casting Crowns

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

Chorus:
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 when
I 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

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 


Tears and prayers anyone?

This was written after Katrina hit Mississippi. When I was down there working building houses I saw the interview that created the song. It was very touching.

When times get tough, I ALWAYS have songs that I sing, sometimes even out loud if no one is around. Pray, sing, pray, sing! This song is the most popular in my head and heart, right there with Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus! It always helps me put things in perspective. Praying for you during this storm my friend.

I didn't realize this was written after Katrina. It became very special to me in 2008. My MIL died on cancer in August, then we lost our home to Hurricane Ike in September. God brought this song to mind over and over again in the months that followed.
