Mercy Me is quite frankly one of my favorite Christian bands out there. I first saw them in concert at Rock the Universe at Universal Studios, Orlando many moons ago and have been a fan ever since. All of the albums that Mercy Me has produced have been phenomenal, but I must admit, I like Coming Up to Breathe the best so far. Despite the fact that every song has a significant story, I found there to be a somewhat playful side to some of the lyrics and the music on this release. If you don't believe me, check out One Trick Pony and Writer's Block. I also love the dedication to their wives with You're to Blame. (They have another CD coming out soon called The Generous Mr. Lovewell, so I can't wait to hear what that's all about.)
Things have been going rather well for me the last couple of months and I've been concerned. I know you're probably thinking I'm crazy to have concerns when things are hunky-dory, but I do. God usually has us going through a storm, just coming out of a storm, or just getting ready to go through a storm. My concern is that I'm getting ready to go through a storm and I'm not sure from which direction it's going to come. I know that I should stop worrying because God has everything under control, but that is easier said than done. (I just wish He'd let me in on his plans so I could "ride the wave" a bit easier. Maybe even give him a few tips on how I think thinmgs should go. :) Come on, I know I'm not the only one who has thought this...)
What does this admisson have to do with Mercy Me, you ask? Well, their song Bring the Rain has really hit home with me today and it's on their Coming Up To Breathe CD. Yes, I've hit You Tube again and found the song to share with you. Without further ado, here's the song Bring the Rain by Mercy Me.
So, God, even though I have no idea what happens next, I know that You do, so, I guess I have to reluctantly say--Bring the Rain. Thank you for being with me through the storm and for helping me "dry off" afterwards.
