The Storm From The Other Side

This past week and half has been one of heartbreak and anger and confusion. I have questioned God and myself, my relationships with people, and tried to understand situations the best I can.
I have lost friendships and family members, and have found myself turning to the Psalms for comfort. My faith has been challenged and my church has been hurt. My friends are going through hard times and are seeking answers. I have fallen on my face crying out to God asking why things like this happen. But one thing I know is that God is in charge, and He sees the storm from the other side.

“When the storm raged about them
The disciples were afraid
For the waves were high and the ship was tossed
They could not find their way
Then they awoke the master
Saying Lord please save us now
He rebuked the winds and the sea grew calm
And they all wondered how

God sees the storm from the other side
He knows the lessons learned
And just beyond the clouds He sees clear skies
He speaks peace to the raging storm when peace could not be found
He already sees the rainbow when we see only clouds

Like the man on the sea did
I have called on God in prayer
When it seemed to me all hope was gone and in my deep despair
I remembered what the Lord said when He calmed that troubled sea
And I know once more how He sees the storm
And peace floods over me

God sees the storm from the other side
He knows the lessons learned
And just beyond the clouds He sees clear skies
He speaks peace to the raging storm when peace could not be found
He already sees the rainbow when we see only clouds

And when the storms of life come crashing in and trouble me
I can feel Gods arms around me and he whispers
Let it be, Let it be”
