After the Storm

Acknowledge the storm
That ripped through your life,
Tore open your heart
And filled it with strife.
It happened to you,
This you cannot deny,
Then hear God’s response
To your desperate cry
“Trust Me.

Accept all the changes,
Don’t grope for the past,
Cherish the memories
But move forward at last.
It happened to you,
It’s okay to ask why,
Then hear His response
To your heartbroken cry,
“Trust Me.”

Adjust to the difference,
You must yield to the flow:
At times you’ll be frightened
By things you don’t know.
It happened to you,
But press on-you must try,
Then hear His response
To your struggling cry,
“Trust Me.”

Endure those times when
Your prayers are a groan:
The journey is hard
But not yours alone.
Consider your loved ones,
It’s their plight too-
A twofold heartbreak,
For they care about you.
Yes, it happened to them,
It goes beyond “my….”
Then hear His response
To each one’s cry,
“Trust Me.”

His grace is sufficient,
His promises, true,
It’s not about me.
It’s not about you.
It’s about God the Father,
His glory, His plan
For eternal salvation
Through Christ, Son of Man.
It happened to Jesus,
He suffered too, But He chose to trust Him—
What about you?
