Positive lyrics to live by

Sunday, August 01, 2010

I've been in really tough places before. And I'm talking dark places. I never allow myself to fall into depression, however, I've been so low before I'd thought I was bound to be miserable for the rest of my life. Of course, that didn't happen. Something, be it inner strength, a comforting friend, or the good Lord above, has always pulled me out so that I come out a stronger person that I have before. I stumbled across the song "Praise you in this Storm" (which is quite interesting now that I'm thinking about it, considering I just had a horrible run in a storm just now! LOL!) by Casting Crowns. Just thought I'd share some of the lyrics with you all in hopes that if you are feeling down and out, it might help you through those hard times.

I was sure by now, God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

Simply beautiful! :) Hope you all have a happy week!
