I will praise you in the storm: after sendong



I was sure by now
God 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 Your 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

[Chorus:]
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

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to you
And 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 fallsseek help and healing. 
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

[Chorus]

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


Its hard to praise the Lord when our hearts are filled with pain and sorrow and so much grief but then the Lord deserves our praise and worship so we still choose to worship Him. Its a way to reach out to Him in praise and worship, we can cry out to the Lord and seek for healing, comfort and assurance that things will be ok in the end. It has been said in His word that we may suffer but these things will come to an end for weeping stays for a night and in the morning comes rejoicing coz  our hope is in the Lord and no one can take that away from us. Still we choose to praise God in the storm. We choose to cling to Him.
