Trying to Praise Him

So today it is a little harder to breathe- a little harder to sing these words honestly- but I'm trying...
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

Bring the Rain

This is my heart's prayer...
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

Back Here Again

Things are hard. I am dangerously close to a place I never wanted to be again. Who knew that doing God's will could include perceived failures? Does God mean to bring us to our breaking points? I am back on my knees, back standing before His throne, wondering what He's doing now. What else does He want from me?!?!  After I say amen, all I can do is let the tears mix with the rain...
