Your Strong Arms, My GOD, Gives Me Stength to Welcome the Rain


Strong Arm

My child I knew you before the world began
I was there everytime you put your name on the sand
But lately I know you've been through quite a storm
My child I've been there, since the day you were born

Refrain:
Oh, and I rule the wind. Yes and I calm the sea
And the sun won't go down until I say that it can leave
Just as sure as my Word I stand here right by your side
And if you're just too weak to go on
Remember child...I'm your strong arm

Now people will wonder, and they'll stand amazed
They say you're a miracle and I will be praised
And even though your pain has been too hard to bear
Just know that I am with you, there's no need to despair




This song was shared by a friend of mine as a suggestion for our duet on July 19, 2009 as a part of our presentation for the community. I was also looking for songs that I could carry to sing that time, songs that are easy to sing and at the same time speaks on what I truly felt. I was really down last week and found Bring the Rain. Even though somehow I can relate to it, apart of me knows that I don't and can't feel the song deeply...well, guess what? God truly knows how to comfort me. He knows the right words to say whenever I am not okay. He knows what song is perfect for what I am going through.

He has always been my strong arm but maybe I was too down to remember that. Thank you Lord for Your great love and for all the miracles that You've shown me. Thank You for reminding me that You're just there and that You will never abandon me. Thank You for restoring my strength so that I could welcome the rain that You will bless me.


Bring the Rain

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that
I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You

Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray

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

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

The Lord will never abandon those who believe they are something in The Holy Spirit - something to God. The good Lord looks after his own. I hope your turbulence soon will come to an end so that you can access your future happy and satisfied. I think of you.

I have made a new blog! And I post messages for your mobile phone. Please have a look at Stums of A.W.E..

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND

A happy day and one great weekend
The good Lord give you, my dear friend.
I know you never will pretend,
by working Sunday, wealth to spend.
