public holiday today… THE chance to sleep in… too bad I woke up at 7.30am…
Couldn’t fall asleep again so I started looking for some stuff on the internet and came across this song by MercyMe.
At first I thought it’s one of those ‚Lord, give me this and that‘ songs… but then I realized that it’s rather the opposite… and then… hm… I was kind of convicted of this ‚Lord, I need you to make me happy, I want to feel peace and love!‘ So often I have this ‚give me‘ attitude towards God! Hm… I’m not sure… I guess it’s ok for us to be totally honest towards God and he does want to know what’s on our hearts and minds… and we can tell him what we long for! BUT on the other side… there’s this attitude (we could/should have) of ‚whatever gives you the glory – go ahead and do – even if this means ‚rain‘
Ok… before those thoughts turn out to a sermon – here’s the song:

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
Holy, holy, holyHoly, holy, holy
is the lord God almighty
is the lord God almighty
I’m forever singing
everybody singing Holy holy holy
you are holy you are holy

PS: There’s a video clip on youtube to that song
