Blue Skies

Yesterday’s forecast called for rain and I
found all my so-called friends to be fair weather kind.
Looking for shelter, I was standing out in my pain;
That’s when You came and You changed everything

‘Cause April-showers bring May-flowers, like
only You turn my darkest hour into

Blue skies, blue skies
Not a cloud over-head in my life
When it’s gray out, I don’t mind –
I’ve got blue skies on the inside

Tossed about upon the stormy sea I swayed
Scared to death, not at the wind, but what I heard You say:
It’s not every time Your hand the wind will stay
Sometimes You’re calling me to walk out on the waves…

My perception should be a reflection,
not of what my eyes see, but what Jesus tells me

Chorus

I’m not saying I won’t ever have a problem
Sometimes life’s gonna rain on my parade,
but if I know that You’re right here with me then
why should I worry? Why should I be afraid?

Outside when the rain is pouring all around,
I don’t have to let it get me down

~ Scripture reference:

Luke 8:22-25 
Now it came to pass on a certain day, that He went into a ship with His disciples: and He said unto them, “Let us go over unto the other side of the lake.”  And they launched forth.  But as they sailed He fell asleep:  and there came down a storm of wind on the lake;  and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.  And they came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we perish.”  Then He arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water:  and they ceased, and there was a calm.  And He said unto them, “Where is your faith?”  And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, “What manner of man is this! for He commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey Him.”

Matthew 14:22-33
And straightway Jesus constrained His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.  And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray:  and when the evening was come, He was there alone.  But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves:  for the wind was contrary.  And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.  And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit”;  and they cried out for fear.  But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.”  And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water.”  And He said, “Come.”  And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.  But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid;  and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, “Lord, save me.”   And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”  And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.  Then they that were in the ship came and worshiped Him, saying, “Of a truth Thou art the Son of God.”
