Thank you, SCC…

guitar

In the heat of the “battle” of two heart attacks, I asked the hubby to have our youngest (who was holding down the fort at home and taking care of our dog) to reload my iPod with songs that would help me cope with all these crazy health issues. I asked the right person to do that…my kids know my taste in music way too well….probably because I kept blaring it at them at ear-shattering volumes throughout their childhoods.  When this song played one night right after heart attack # 3, tears streamed down my cheek. While this is an oldie, it’s definitely a goodie. And nobody writes music or lyrics like Steven Curtis Chapman. So, Mr. Chapman? Thank you for writing what I could not. This song is “spooky” in terms of how much it applies to me. But then, my God has been called a Ghost before, so “spooky” just happens to be His domain.

If you have the time, listen to the actual soundtrack at the bottom–the music is powerful, too.

Bring It On by Steven Curtis Chapman

I didn’t come lookin’ for trouble
And I don’t want to fight needlessly
But I’m not gonna hide in a bubble
If trouble comes for me
I can feel my heart beating faster
I can tell something’s coming down
But if it’s gonna make me grow stronger then…

Bring it on
Let the lightning flash, let the thunder roll, let the storm winds blow
Bring it on
Let the trouble come, let the hard rain fall, let it make me strong
Bring it on

Now, maybe you’re thinkin’ I’m crazy
And maybe I need to explain some things
‘Cause I know I’ve got an enemy waiting
Who wants to bring me pain
But what he never seems to remember
What he means for evil God works for good
So I will not retreat or surrender

Now, I don’t want to sound like some hero
‘Cause it’s God alone that my hope is in
But I’m not gonna run from the very things
That would drive me closer to Him
So bring it on

Bring it on
Let the lightning flash, let the thunder roll, let the storm winds blow
Bring it on
Let the trouble come, let it make me fall on the One who’s strong
Bring it on
Let the lightning flash, let the thunder roll, let the storm winds blow
Bring it on
Let me be made weak so I’ll know the strength of the One who’s strong
Bring it on
Bring it on

    Thanks for:
    1. Having the website to visit you
    2. For sharing that amazing song- it reminds me a little bit of Casting Crowns “Praise You in the Storm”
    3. For fighting each day to stay here with us, even when we both know how absolutely wonderful Heaven is
    LOVE YOU!!!
