Storm Clouds (#350)
Bible version used: KJV
I cannot say that I am glad when storm clouds come,
When days and nights are burdensome and long.
I like the peacefulness of sunny days
When life is bright and in my heart’s a song
And yet...I know the wisdom I have learned
Or any courage that my life displays
Was never gained in golden sunlit hours
But rather grew from dark and stormy days.
I’ve felt God’s presence closer ‘mid the storm
As I relied on Him to guide my way
And through my trails found a stronger faith
Enabling me to better face each day.
And so, I would not ask God NOT to send
Those testings fashioned by His loving hand;
For ALL things work together for my good
And things once questioned...now I understand.
-- Beverly J. Anderson
We know that all things work together for good to them that love God. – Romans 8:28
