continued praise

"I was sure by now, God, you would have reached down,
and wiped my tears away, stepped in and saved the day;
but once again, I say Amen, and it's still raining.
And as the thunder rolls, I barely hear,
you whisper through the rain, 'I am with you.'"

These are some of the lyrics to a song by Casting Crowns called Praise You in the Storm.
And boy, I am so trying to do that. Through life's disappointments and unfulfilled dreams that seem so perfect to me, I am trying to continue to praise God, knowing that He is the only one who knows what perfect for me looks like. It's so hard sometimes, to understand why things happen the way they do, but I think what defines who we are is what then? do we respond to those situations. And can we continue to praise God through the storm.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
