I was sure by now
God 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

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your 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

I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
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
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

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

I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
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 lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth
I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
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
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

    In 2007, my husband's ex-wife filed false charges on him. We both didn't worry much until his arrest in April 08on a warrant for the allegations. I was able to get him out on bond after just 3 weeks. in Feb of 09, we had his trial...on his birthday he was found guilty of a crime he did not commit and given 2 life sentences. When I left the courthouse, I was devastated. I used to listen to only country music. My husband listened to KSBJ. The radio was still on KSBJ from when he drove to the courthouse that morning and this song was playing. We are in a storm right now. And the storm will rage for a little while as we fight for a new trial and an appeal. But we also have come to have a closer relationship with Jesus through this storm. This song makes me sad and happy at the same time and is my lifeline right now while my husband is miles away. I know God will come through and bring him home in His time not ours.

    My church started a group almost this time last year, and we worked extremely hard, we were called I AM, innovative action ministries, and, we lost a member, so I had to fill in, I prayed, and prayed, and prayed, and we performed beautifully! from this day on, I AM is still famous in our area, among the southern baptist church I attend, and the bible camp we performed at. We touched many people's hearts, and for this, I praise the lord!

    (enjoyed everyone's comments above!) elderly and not so big on 'modern' Christian music, but Praise You in the Storm is the exception as all of us, no matter what, need to be assured 24/7 that He is really by our side, all THROUGH that up hill climb and HE IS ALIVE AND WELL! that I know having just come out of 3 months of hospitalization (test/challenge to learn to walk again with obstacle of emphysema) with Him really at my side, literally, in all that He did to get me home..and eventually I will be at Home with Him...I hope and pray everyone knows Him personally as penetratingly as I do...In Christ's mercy and grace, Psalm 87:7: "All my springs are in You."

    My son (the love of my life) was dignosed at birth with Down's Syndrome. Looking at my sobbing wife and my weak child I've never felt smaller. But i knew I had to make a choice then. Either an endless vortex of despair and life long self pity or just lifting up my hands & voice, drowning my body and hell's demons and yell "Glory to Jesus" Louder and louder so my Spirit, my soul and body will echo same, so all of me praised him in this Storm.
    Today my son Ife is totally healed but he is far from normal. He is a child of praise a Jesus forged-diamond in my pressure and storms.

    In 2006, I had many worries and faced many unknowns going into Iraq on a year long deployment. Before I left the US, I had a dream that was starting to upset me: it was my uncertainties from one room to the next on a huge boat that was docked in a NY harbor. When I finally made it through the gauntlet of rooms onto the deck of this gigantic boat docked in a harbor, all of the sudden a rogue wave came and crashed against the boat. We were being tossed from side to side, someone tried to get off the boat and was crushed against it and the dock, people were screaming and crying, "we're going to die!" and I fell to my knees in despair. I remember being so upset and scared in my dream because we hadn't even left yet, we were supposed to be safe, the very structure we were attached to was going to come to pieces and I felt betrayed and terrified and cried out to God in despair. Then, in my dream, Jesus appeared before me flanked by two men and said, "Don't you know that I control the storm?" and immediately the tumult stopped, it just disappeared and the sun was out, the sky was clear, the waster was so calm. I can't remember if Jesus asked me why I was afraid or if he told me to get up. I woke up the next morning with peace. My uncertainties and the unknowns were still unanswered, but I was filled with calm because I didn't have to know the answers; I just knew that God controlled the storm and that was all I needed to be safe. During my deployment, I struggled a lot with unconditionally loving my co-workers who treated me very poorly and whom I felt betrayed by. I know there were times that I failed to love my enemies--not just the insurgents who launched mortar rounds into our FOB, but my own co-workers who actually hated me because I was a Christian, or because I was a woman. I'd never experienced that before in all my life before the deployment. But I knew then and know now that when you're tapped out of love and forgiveness, when you are physically unsafe, especially in the place were you are supposed to be safe, God still controls the storm and have faith! He will not allow you to be swept away. You can ask him to give you the unconditional love for others that you just honestly can't seem to find by yourself and don't want to give anyway. If we choose, we can cry out to him for the grace and love we need for others. He gives us what we need.

    Where I feel like I failed in Iraq: I did not always focus on building my relationship with God, I did not always love my enemies unconditionally with the same love and grace and mercy that Jesus shows to me. I am a child of the living God, but I am far from perfect. You want to know something really cool? God still loves me, and still reaches out to me as my Friend, my Sovereign, and my Dad. I choose God, because he controls the storm. He gives me the strength and love to walk into the proverbial lions den out of obedience to him. I've seen it, I know it's true. What other deity or person can do the same? That is the storm he brought me out of, how can I not praise him for this?
