Life intends to rob us,
of ourselves and all we love.
It knocks us down and beats us up,
until we’re forced to look above.
We wonder why God allows it,
the heartache, guilt and pain?
As we pray for days of sunshine,
and a break from all the rain.
But maybe it’s His blessing,
part of a plan to draw us near.
And every storm He brings us to,
is His chance to wipe our tears.
