i can't stop the rain...but i will hold you till it goes away

They say that everybody is either just heading into a trial, is going through a trial, or just coming out of one. I believe that is true. It seems that lately all I'm hearing about is one heartache or another. There is so much pain in this world. There are people in abusive relationships, people who can't have children, people who have lost loved ones, people struggling with addictions, people who live with depression, people who are all alone....how do you even begin to deal??

We need to lean on each other; we need to support each other; we need to TRUST each other.
We need to confide in each other; we need to pray for each other; we need to hold each other.
We need to L-O-V-E each other.
When the rain comes....

When The Rain Comes

-Third Day
When the rain comes if seems that everyone has gone away
When the night falls you wonder if you shouldn't find someplace
To run and hide
Escape the pain
But hiding's such a lonely thing to do
I can't stop the rain
From falling down on you again
I can't stop the rain
But I will hold you till it goes away
When the rain comes you blame it on the things that you have done
When the storm fades you know that rain must fall on everyone
Rest awhile
It'll be alright
No one loves you like I do
I can't stop the rain
From falling down on you again
I can't stop the rain
But I will hold you till it goes away

Amen. It's a lot easier said than done though -- overcoming our own foolish pride and opening up, making ourselves vulnerable, and allowing someone to pray for us or hold us. THAT's the tough part.
