Hard times

I don’t know when I’ll feel like blogging again. I’m going through some really hard things and if anyone thinks of me, please pray for us all. Please pray specifically for my dear M’s salvation. And for me to weather this storm.

Praise You In This Storm
I was sure by now,
You would have reached down,
Wiped our tears away,
Stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I’ll say amen,
And it’s still raining

And as the thunder rolls
I barely hear
You whisper through the rain
I’m with you
And as your mercy falls
I’ll 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’ve never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry, You
Raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can’t find you?
But 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 ever tear I’ve cried
You hold in your hand
You’ve never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth…

    P.S. I am sorry I couldn’t call today. I wasn’t able to get to the phone during that window of time. Can I call tomorrow? Well, I will try anyway.

    Love, Wardeh

    Wardeh, no problem! A friend is planning on coming over tomorrow but I’m not sure how long she’ll be here. Maybe it would be better if I call you after she leaves if it’s not too late.

    Amy,

    I am so sorry you are going through this. I am praying for you and your family.

    That song was sung at Beverly’s funeral. I know it’s a good one to cry to and feel comfort from at the same time.

    Love, and prayers,
    Jennifer

    I know how you feel. I posted the same song on my blog recently. I am praying for you. Sometimes you just need to talk. Sometimes you need to be guiet and still and wait. God is with you. He has reached down for me. He will reach down for you. Just be still and know he is God. Maybe my blog will lift your spirits. http://www.missionmakeover.typepad.com Blessings.
