Storms, Rain and Dancing

I came across a quote today that I’ve never encountered before, and that I really want to take to heart, even though I can’t find its author:

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.

If I believed this even just a few years ago, maybe I would’ve been a happier person. Life is so full of storms; I can’t even begin to count the number I have walked through since I was a teenager (seems like that’s the last time I knew the meaning of happiness). I could’ve been dancing all these years! Well, here I come…salsa!

    Interesting … I have been listening to, and praying through, these Delirious? lyrics lately:

    I think you can actually access the song online too.

    Rain Down (2003)

    Looks like tonight, the sky is heavy
    Feels like the winds are gonna change
    Beneath my feet, the earth is ready
    I know its time for heaven’s rain
    It’s gonna rain

    Cos it’s living water we desire
    To flood our hearts with holy fire

    Rain down all around the world we’re singing
    Rain down can you here the earth is singing
    Rain down my heart is dry but still I’m singing
    Rain down rain it down on me.

    Back to the start, my heart is heavy
    Feels like it’s time, to dream again
    I see the clouds, and yes I’m ready
    To dance upon this barren land
    Hope in my hands

    Do not shut, Do not shut, Do not shut the heavens
    But open up, open up, open up our hearts

    Give me strength to cross this water
    Keep my heart upon your altar
    Give me strength to cross this water
    Keep my feet don’t let me falter
