The song that best describes my life right now

"Bring The Rain"

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 

Very early on in this trial, two friends prayed that God would be glorified through our family and this trial. I think he has, through no effort of our own but at what he has done for us. I was singing this song this morning and cleaning my house. Just thankful for all that has happened and all that is to come. I am thankful for this trial, it has forever changed our lives and made us view things very differently. Things that mattered before, just don't matter anymore. Priorities have changed and really we have changed most of all.
