Lately I've been staring at the clouds
Alive with beauty
Reflecting all that I live
And I can't help but wonder

When will they fade away?
Fearing the dark may come my way
Turning day back into the dreary night
Where clouds I'll never see

I will stare till I can see no more
With dark approaching
I'm longing for answers to
These questions that I pose

When will they fade away?
Fearing the dark may come my way
Turning day back into the dreary night
Where clouds I'll never see

Though outside it's dark and toxic
I'll try not to be afraid
Cause the stars burn brightly
With hope you give, my love

Their bright lights shine
Like beacons in the sky
Guiding me far from this place
Glowing knives cut right through this darkened sky
Till all that's good refills my gaze

    General CommentMuch like "Buck up, they're coming," this guy looks around him and sees God's blessing around him. But this time, instead of living in it and appreciating it, he's afraid of losing it. He's afraid that God will bring another storm in his life, disrupt his comfort. This kind of pessimism sucks out the life from him.

    But the hope of God and what He can do stirs him. Even when all he sees around him is darkness, he doesn't live by this sight but by the faith in the hope that is in Jesus. He knows that God loves him and will draw him back to Him.
