Through the storms

The day has come despite the storms of the night.
People so scared and in hiding just hoping for light.
But then the storm passes and you are alive.
Is it wrong to feel thankful when others did not survive?

How often we forget that today is a gift.
Tomorrow’s not promised—just this day to live.
But too often we forget the blessings of this day.
Until tragedy strikes and takes lives away.

It is a hard question to answer, but we still ask ‘why.’
Why must bad things happen, why must innocents die?
But until the story is finished and God says it’s complete,
We will still have sorrows and tears and things seem incomplete.

But there will come a day with a trump and a sigh,
Following silence in heaven as a short times passes by.
Then Jesus will come and claim all of his own.
And wipe tears from our eyes for every sadness we’ve known.

But until that day we must walk by faith and not sight.
We must shine in the darkness and bring forth his light.
Through storms and quakes and when disasters abound,
We must be still and know that God’s always around.

For those who have lost loved ones, property, and more
Don’t be discouraged for he knocks at the door.
And says come to him when you are burdened and he will give you rest.
For he desires that your heart not be troubled, but that it be blessed.
