Praise in the Storm

Received some bad news today from the doctor, which has left me without much creative inspiration. After removing a spot from my back on Monday, the doctor called today with the news that the spot was Melanoma. Meeting with the surgeon tomorrow for the next step. Very hopeful that we caught it early. But for now, my friends and family are keeping my spirits high... and of course, belief that my God will carry me through this storm...

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

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as You 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 life 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

- Casting Crowns


  1. Aw, I will be praying and trusting in God that he loves and keeps you. Keep your spirits up! I have only recently been reading your blogs but if you ever need to talk, I'm here. =] I really mean that! Keep your eyes on God and remember that he knows what he's doing! ♥♥♥♥ Lots of love.

  2. I love you Miss Elizabeth and you are in my prayers and thoughts.... Hang in there :)

  3. I'm SO sorry to hear that, you'll be in my prayers!

  4. don't you just love casting crowns. I love how music can bring on such emotion and (for me) even increase my faith all the more!
