And I'm still goin' through it, pain and the hurt
Soakin up trouble like rain in the dirt

from DMX – Lord Give Me a Sign Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even though he is being loyal to God, he is still going through hard times and wonders why God isn’t helping him.

The rain is trouble and as he soaks it up he becomes a mess (mudd) that’s just trying to live a better life than the one he was born into.
