There’s a song playing on Christian radio right now by MercyMe Bring the Rain. I get so pumped up by that song. Here’s the chorus:
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
By the time the song ends, I’m like yeah, bring it on. But then you go to Especially Heather and you read of what her daughter Emma Grace and the family has been through and now to see her going through cancer herself it’s like, woah, do I really mean bring the rain? I mean, maybe I could handle some sprinkles but storms like that? I’m not sure if I’m ready to pray for that.
I have no doubts God would give me the patience, peace, wisdom and perserverance to go through what she is going through, but I’m not sure I’m ready to ask for any rain. So in saying that, praise God that He picked the right woman to let her be a modern day Job and she stands tall and proud, giving God praise the whole way through.
