I did not know his love before,
the way I know it now.
I thought I knew his love for me,
I thought I'd seen his grace,
I thought I did not need to grow,
I thought I found my place.
But then the way grew rough and dark,
the storm clouds quickly rolled;
the waves began to rock my ship,
my anchor would not hold.
The ship that I had built myself
was made of foolish pride.
It fell apart and left me bare,
with no where else to hide.
I had no strength or faith to face
the trials that lay ahead.
His loving arms enveloped me,
and now he helps me stand.
He said, "you still must face this storm,
but I will hold your hand."
So, through the dark and lonely nights
he will guide me through pain;
I can now see the light of day
but not when the storm will wane.
Yet through the aches and endless tears,
my faith begans to grow.
My light will surely shine again for it will
be a brightful glow.
I see God's love in a brand new light,
his grace and mercy too.
For only when all self is gone
can Jesus' love shine through.
Its not easy in the storm,
I sometimes wonder "why"
At times I think I cant go on.
I hurt, I doubt, and I cry.
But Jesus has never left my side.
He guides me each day.
Through pain and strife,
through fire and flood,
he will help me all the way.
And now I see as never before
how great his love can be.
How in my weakness HE is strong,
how Jesus cares for me!
He works it all out for my good,
although the way is rough.
He will only send what I can bear,
then he will cry ENOUGH!!!!!!!
He will raise his hand and say, "BE STILL!"
and he will make the storm clouds cease.
He will open up the gates of joy
and flood me with peace.
I see his face now clearer still,
I feel his presence strong.
I'm finding a new faithfullness
for HE will never do me wrong.
Now I know more storms will come,
but only for my good
for pain and tears have helped me grow
as nothing else ever could.
I still have so much to learn
as Jesus works in me,
If in the storm I love him more,
thats where I want to be!
