Live has its questions, as proven today
When my spirit sensed darkness coming my way
The storms that were hidden, returned oh so fast,
Just when I thought they were lost in the past
Again I felt teardrops fall from my eyes,
Like rivers of pain, that grew deeper in size
My heart began breaking, like it did the first time,
I faced this storm weeping, asking "Whey is God blind?"
I relived the suffering that I felt for so long,
A suffering that came from a live too soon gone
Again I cried "God…where are you now?
I can’t even stand up - I don’t think I know how"
Then as quick as the storm entered my heart,
A sweet simple peace recited its part
As if I heard God in a gentle kind voice,
Say to me ‘Child , their life was my choice"
"I know your suffering… and your child is fine,
And you’ll see them soon, for you too are mine
Above all things, I know what to do,
Remember my child, I lost my child too"
"But just as my son rose to my throne,
Know that I’ll never leave you alone
So when these storms rage, call on my name,
And I’ll speak this answer to you…unchanged"
