So much of life just happens
Even as we watch
We think we are in control
Truth is, we aren’t

Waiting on a bad storm
Causes prayers to rise
Each and every person
Not surprised

And yet each day is similar
Storms mostly come unannounced
We should be committed
To watch for storms each day

They swirl about us
Striking while we snooze
Thinking life is easy
Then crumbling in the storm

Storms have a purpose
If we will look to Christ
They let Him strengthen
Our ordinary lives

Life lulls to boredom
People go to sleep
While all around the evil
Strikes a strident beat

Wake up casual Christian
Pay attention to your ways
Pray for wisdom
To face the evil day
