Inspirational Thursday

Edited to add that I am very happy this morning. My Tarheels played again last night and won. They even added Tyler Zeller to the game. He hasn't played since November because he broke his hand. We thought they might not play him this season, but Zeller had differnet ideas. He is going to be a Monster on the court. Love him already and I've only seen him play like 3 times. (once was in person woot woot).

Now onto your regularly scheduled Inspirational Thursday.

This song got me through many dark days. Whenever I was at my lowest point, I would listen to this. It was lift me up. I would sing it over and over and over at the trepidation of my husband. He didn't mind the song ~ it was my singing! :o)

Praise you in this storm
by Casting Crowns

I was sure by now,God, that 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 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.

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 raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and 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

Chorus

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
