Praise through the pain

For the last couple of weeks I've been experiencing a tremendous amount of back pain. During this time I've had little relief, but have still needed to take care of the baby, the house and Dad. Last Monday I was driving home from gymnastics and the lyrics of a song on the radio rang out and spoke to me. It was almost like God Himself was telling me the message. Here are the lyrics:

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

This is from the song my Mercy Me called Bring the Rain.

I'm thankful that I've been able to have this difficult time because the one thing it has shown me is that I'm stronger than any pain as long as I continue to focus on Him. I'm thankful for the fact that I'm able to feel the pain, there are so many out there that can't. I'm thankful for the fact that when it gets so bad I don't think I can go on I have a beautiful daughter who hugs me, rubs my back and says 'it'll be okay momma'. I'm thankful for the many prayers that have been said on my part and for the caring that has been shown by my friends. The Lord has truly blessed me and yes even through the tears I'm going to choose to say "I will praise you Jesus, bring the rain"
