i felt the rain against my back
tasted the darkness as it engulfed me
sensed the pressure of the rising current
the oscillation of the recent thunder
the pain of the clouds above me
but through it all, i felt Your hand.
Your gentle, guiding touch.
and Your peace that i cannot understand.
and as the daylight dances around me
i cannot breathe for awe and wonder
because i see them there -
my enemies behind me -
and the bridges You burned,
i see it was for my good.
and through the pain,
i see the blessing.
and i thank You
for sunlight in the mornings.
