Steven Curtis Chapman – Sometimes He Comes In The Clouds lyrics

These are the places I was so sure I'd find him
I looked in the pages and I looked down on my knees
I lifted my eyes in expectation
To see the sun still refusing to shine, But
Sometimes He comes in the clouds
Sometimes His face can not be found
Sometimes the sky is dark and gray
But some things can only be known
And sometimes are faith can only grow
When we can't see
So sometimes he comes in the clouds
Sometimes I see me, a sailor out on the ocean
So brave and so sure, as long as the skies are clear
But when the clouds to gather
I watch my faith turn to fear, But...
Sometimes he comes in the rain
And we question the pain
And wonder why God can seem so far away
But time will show us, he was right there with us, and

    The song reflects at the rain's benefits and what faith is all about. God will not let us go through the pains and hurts and sufferings without Him knowing and allowing it. We have to go through trials in order for us to be strong, to be polished, to make us better, not destroy us.
