Back of the Clouds

My journey through life has constantly been bombarded by storms. Yes, there have been very sunny and happy days but when it rains, it really pours; and the storms have been very heavy. That has not diminished my faith in the Lord. On the contrary, the storms that I continue to encounter has made my faith in Him stronger.

You and I cannot rely on our strength alone. We need God if we are to survive the heavy storms that come our way.

"Back of the Clouds" is another favorite gospel song I used to sing duet back home:

Never fear tho shadows dark around your path may fall;
Do not let your heart be troubled;

From His throne in heaven,
God is watching one and all,
He will ever care for you.
Back of the clouds the sun is always shining,

After the storms your skies will all be blue;

God has prepared a rosy-tinted lining,

Back of the clouds it's waiting to shine thru.

Winter long is over and the spring has gone her way,

Often has the storm clouds gathered,

But the rain has only made the blossoms look more gay,

Given earth a brighter hue.

Keep the light of hope eternal dwelling in your heart,

Rest upon the Father's promise,

And you'll find that care and trouble quickly will depart

Heaven's peace will enter in.
