    I was sure by now
    God You would have reached down
    And wiped our tears away
    Stepped in and saved the day
    But once again, I say “Amen”, and it’s still raining

    As the thunder rolls
    I barely hear You whisper through the rain
    “I’m with you”
    And as Your mercy falls
    I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
    And takes away

    Chorus:
    I’ll praise You in this storm
    And I will lift my hands
    For You are who You are
    No matter where I am
    Every tear I’ve cried
    You hold in Your hand
    You never left my side
    And though my heart is torn
    I will praise You in this storm

    As the thunder rolls
    I barely hear You whisper through the rain
    “I’m with you”
    And as Your mercy falls
    I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
    And takes away

    My prayers are with Noah’s family, I know God will give them peace during this time. I would often speak to him about my mothers battle with cancer and how God healed her, for Noah God did one better he took him to be with him in heaven. Noah you will be missed and never forgotten.
    Your Classmate, Devon Perry

    Just two weeks after joining Boy Scouts, Noah went on his first campout where he had to hike to the top of a mountain with his new scout buddies. We started out and all were happy and exited. As the hike went on, the weather turned first to sprinkles and then into a constant drizzle. One of Noah’s long time friends basically gave into the challenge within site of the top of the mtn. His buddy sat down and just quit. Claimed he could go no more, that was it. Noah went to the other lad and encoraged him to complete the remainder of the short trek to the top. Noah had blue lips from being cold and wet but somehow was able to convince his friend to make it to the top. I am certain Noah had no idea how cold he was but did know he needed to encourage his firend to carry on. Over the next several years, Noah was always exceeding happy and cheerful about every possible activity regardless of the challenges. When ever I think about Noah, I think about that moment on the side of the mountain where he thought of others first.

    It has been challenging and humbling to see the Spivey family each week at church with Noah. I am part of the seating team and standing in the back it was so humbling to hear them sing “in life, in death – I’m confident and covered by the power of your great love”, and know that they were living it, whereas I am often just singing it. Thankful for the faithful witness of Noah and his family.
