fell in love..

Yes. I fell in love, unfortunatly not with a person but with a song. This song was played on Sunday during church. I had to admit during worship I was just singing along, my mind wandered around and I was just tired. At the start of offering time, the worship team started playing this song. I’ve never heard it before but I was captured to the lyrics and the tune of it. I quickly wrote the name of the song on my bulletin so I can find the song and listen to it again.

I was talking to a friend today and helping him/giving advice about his problems. One of his messages made me laugh and reminded me of this song. He said to me “You must be the happiest person alive!”

I’ve been debating whether to post just a part of the lyrics here or the whole song. And I’ve decided to put the whole song because the whole song relates to me very well.

Bring the rain – MercyMe

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

Every little word of that song matched me so well. Especially the first part of the song, it relates to me so much that I am shocked. Every time I listen to the lyrics or read the lyrics, I am reminded of how much God has provided us. Even though these days, i’ve had quite alot of times when I’m upset, annoyed or just out of it. There are times when I don’t want to talk to anyone and I will be cranky and find excuses to be annoyed. God has always been there and somehow shows me that there’s something out there that will make me happy. There’s something out there more important that what you’re fussing over. He surprises me in so many ways.

I wait for the day I will be with Him. Running up to him with hands wide open, his words, his comfort. It will feel like Home. Nothing else would matter but Him. There are no words to describe my love for Christ.

Cheers Jo!
