Rain, Rain Go Away...'Be Still' (And Listen to God)

Ok so tonight I was at a graduation party at Kara York's house and it started pouring. I wasn't thinking about it in the rush to go close windows that my window was closed but yet has many holes and is rather useless. When I went to leave, my interior was soaked. I was extremely angry and did not know any way to solve my dilemma. I quote Jeff Foxworthy in saying 'duct tape fixes anything'...EXCEPT FOR IN THE RAIN!! My window has been covered in duct tape for about a month now and it is starting to melt away. I went into Jennifer's house to get a towel and...yes duct tape (it takes faith) to try and fix the problem on my own...apparently God did not want that. As I began to dry and cover the spots, the tape decides it wants to run out...there's not any there except for what covers the cardboard circle...INFURIATING!! So I go in to try and use one of Duckt's brothers...Masking, and he's not a heavy duty guy. As soon as I stepped out the door to go finish the job, it begins to rain profusely, cats and dogs, MONSOON. I run back inside with my nerves about to explode and decide I'll just go home anyways. I get in the car and it dawns on me...pray. Oh yeah I remember that thing, it's worth a try. So I did, I prayed that the rain would stop, hey he's done it before on an ocean why can't he now, and it didn't stop. So I prayed at least don't let it damage anything in my car, he answered that one I think. So I decide to do a little praise and worship with myself and the first song to be played on my iPod was 'Praise You in this Storm'?!?!?!?!?!? WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I wasn't listening to that song. Anyways I quote the song 'Once again, I say Amen,(finish praying) and it's still raining' hmmmm was there some reason those words stuck out...maybe it's because I JUST DID THAT. 'And as the thunder rolls, I barely hear you whisper through the rain, 'I'm with you' Pray...Then listen ~peace

jordan and i were in the driveway when that song came on last night during the storm so we decided to sit in the car and sing it...lucky for you she was not in your car cuz i'm pretty sure i have a crack in my window too now...jordan took artistic expression/freedom a little too far w/ her rendition. great point though...sometimes its hard to remember He didn't neccessarily promise us a way OUT of the storm...but he offers us a way THROUGH(to endure) the storm. and yes old people read your blog too...

Hey man just thought I would ask how work is going. Tell Dannie, Whitney, June Bug and Arlen that we are moved in, doing great, and I will shoot them an e-mail when I can get it to work.

Nick... i love your blog! i totally agree with you. when i first heard that song, i could not stop crying. everytime i would experience a trial ,i prayed that God would take it away. but i found myself running from God, when the trial persisted, instead of sticking it out and "praising him in the storm". this song reminds me that God has a purpose in my trials and encourages me to keep my faith, even when it seems like God isnt there.
