Jesus Bring the Rain

Today we found out that the court date has once again been moved. It is now rescheduled for June 6th. I must tell you that this was very difficult for me to take . . . I was prepared - I was ready - I was trusting God that Friday would be the day when good or bad our lives would once again begin to start again. I sat in the car in front of Avery's music class and cried . . . I am tired God - I am so tired . . . My heart is so heavy and weary . . . into music class we go - God I want to be home but first I need to stop at Wal-Mart . . . it takes all my strength just to go down the isles. People passing by have no idea how bad I just want to collapse and wake up to find everything over . . . into the car and on the way home - turn on the radio and I hear this . . . .

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings
You glory And I know there will
be days When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to
praise You Jesus, bring the rain

I am yours regardless of the clouds that may
loom above because you are much greater than
my pain you who made a way for me suffering
your destiny so tell me whats a little rain

You see God reminded me once again - it is not about me - it is ALL about HIM . . . am I tired? am I weary? Yes . . . but God is greater than my weariness - we must constantly push forward to bring HIM glory. Sometimes I just need to be reminded of that - even if it comes in the form on a song driving down West Bypass in Springfield, MO. God is truly SO good. I do not deserve his mercy or grace and yet He continually provides both for me.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5

Go ye therefore . . . Lisa
