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 dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty

    NO matter what happens God has a plan for us. The bible says "My plans for you are for good and not for bad. Like the songs say "can circumstances possibly change who I forever am in you?"

    for me this song is about praising God no matter what circumstances may come your way! Romans 8:28 states that the ultimate end of any circumstance we may find ourselves in is aimed at our ultimate good! God promises that the rainy times & the sunny times all serve 1 ultimate end, which is stated in the very next verse! Roman 8:29 tells us that it is God's will that we be conformed to the Image of His Son & any circumstance that gets us closer to conformation to the Image of the Savior is indeed of the greatest good & ample cause for praise, even if the path to conformation leads through some rainy times God gives us something to aim for in Romans 8: 28-29! Rain isn't bad, it makes us more like Jesus, so let's praise in the midst of the rainy times!!

    This is about how he is always there for us and has purpose for everything. I turn to heaven when i can't handle something and it always tell me to have faith and this is what this song is saying to me. I love you, Jesus, God And the holy ghost.

    This song is about total submission to God and accepting that whatever He brings, He has a purpose for. Praise is our answer to everything.
