A dark and ominous cloud surrounds
and attempts to shut out the sun.
The joy and warmth of a heart of love
shines on. The darkness has not won.
A wavering deep within the soul
questions .. Was I wrong? Did I stray?
Why would this wound me so?
I ponder and I pray.
My God of love is always there
and He guides me through each day.
When I weaken and begin to question “why”.
He says, “my child, pray”.
For I will give you all you need
to “weather” such a storm.
Have faith in what you know is true.
My steadfast love transforms
