Casting Crowns

I've watched the video of "Praise You Through This Storm" by Casting Crowns over and over again during this painful journey of Adam's first weeks of life. Many times over playing this in my hospital room was the only thing even close to a prayer that I could muster and many tears were cried as I listened when I couldn't find any words to simply say, "help!" and "why?" These words helped keep me sane...
"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. But as the thunder rolls, I barely hear you whisper through the rain,  "I'm with you". And as your 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 lift my hands, for you are who you are no matter where I am. Every tear I cry, you hold in your hand, you never left my side and though my heart is torn, I will praise you in this storm."
