In reflection of the last week, as I look to the future ...

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 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

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

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty

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

- MercyMe
Bring the Rain

Wow....I know I've heard the song but never really "heard" it - that's powerful.

Thanks for being so open and such a witness.

It isn't an easy song to sing - especially when we are walking a path of suffering. But in the end - He is all we need. I have found that my choices are trust or despair. I choose to trust.
I'm praying for you to the One Who is able to all that we could ask or think.

Kelli, you are an inspiration. You have such strong faith. I'm praying for you daily. Don't ever let this stuff get you down, there's lots of us strangers out here helping hold you up through the Lord.

This song didn't mean near as much to me as I does right now, reading your blog and about your life and struggle. Thanks for opening your heart.
