I look out my window to overcast sky.
To which some would be happy and some would cry.
At the sight I see, I quiver with delight ~
Knowing the sky holds back its amazing light.
No dreariness here as I see things anew ~
Possibilities are just hidden from view.
Opportunity for me to see beyond
The blanket of comfort from God that just dawned.
Growth will come to me as I start this new day
Because I can trust that God will show the way.
From cloudy skies brighter ones always follow.
It's the way God planned, His promise not hollow.
And in that same way, He watches over me.
His overcast sky but a symbol to see.
He blankets His light asking us to trust Him
And to shine our own lights when the world seems dim.
