Praise You in This Storm - Tiffany (4/19/2011)
When my second daughter was born we named her Grace, and God's Grace has definitely been prevalent in her life!
Before she was born I picked out a scripture verse for her and I prayed it often. When she was baptized I asked her godparents to pick out a scripture verse for her as well. Wouldn't you know, out of all the verses in the entire Bible, they picked the exact same verse that I picked out for her when I was pregnant with her. I prayed this psalm over her from the womb and often when I was up nursing her in the middle of the night.
Two years ago I found out my daughter's skull was fused together and had a problem called craniosynostosis. The first thing we did was pray. God helped us find a great surgeon in Dallas whose staff was not only excellent, but also a group of believers. He guided us through the entire process, but as the surgery drew near I became anxious. I kept hearing the song “Praise You in This Storm” on the radio, and I felt like it was exactly what we were going through. I didn't want to have to let our precious nine month old baby undergo such a major surgery but I decided I would praise God through this difficult storm in our lives and know that He is God and He is always good.
I had heard the song several times but on one particular rainy day on the way home as I was listening to the radio and the song came on I began to cry. Then then the bridge of the song came: "I lift my eyes unto the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord. the maker of Heaven and earth." I began to cry even harder as I realized that is the exact same scripture verses that I had been praying for baby Grace since she was in the womb.
God had truly been with us through that process and continues to be with us to this day. Grace did great after surgery and has not had any problems since. Today she is 3 years old and knows how to say her verses from Psalm 121 because we pray them every day before naptime. She also knows the words to HER song, "Praise You in This Storm."
Thank you KLRC for helping encourage us to praise the Lord in good times and in difficult storms.
