Bring the Rain

I was reading my friend’s new blog and saw a link on her page to a blog titled “Bring the Rain“. I clicked on it and saw right away that the blog was referencing the title to MercyMe’s song – Bring the Rain. A phrase from the song was written out in the side column:
Of course I wanted to know more so I found a link that said if you’re new to the site “start here”. What followed was an amazing account of incredible pain and suffering in the lives of a family clearly in love with Jesus who truly believe that “there is unspeakable joy in knowing how God will use this for His glory”. I won’t tell the story here, but I encourage you to read itfor yourself. Be warned, you will need a tissue!
This is one of those things that, honestly, I find scary in a “be careful what you wish for” way. But, I hope that the words of this song represent a very real belief in me.
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings your 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
