Mercy Me - Bring the Rain

I remember the first time I heard this song - I was on I-4 near I-drive in dtown Orlando. I knew it was Mercy Me singing but knew I hadn't heard the song. It was amazing. It wasn't even the roughest time that I had while being at home. But, God knew I would need that song later. A week or two after hearing it on the radio, Jason and the worship team did it at the request of James at OC. They did a great job!
This morning I got in my car to go "explore" L-ville and the first thing I heard when I turned on my radio was the number 1 song in CCMland - Bring the Rain, 3 weeks in a row. Still a great song. Here are the lyrics. I pray they are an encouragement to your faith.

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 suffering your destiny so tell me whats a little rain
[1st Chorus]

Holy, holy, holyHoly, holy, holy is the lord God almighty
is the lord God almighty I'm forever singing
