Purpose in the Scarred
The sun that sets on our earth's soil
Brightens a dawning day,
Ling'ring darkness comes with time
But daylight's on its way.
There'll always be a sunset,
A time of dark or fear,
But with the rising of the sun,
The way will become clear.
It's always bound to happen,
Depression turns to hope,
The cycles of our lives are brought
To teach us how to cope.
And witnessing God's grace thru trials,
We learn to find it's true,
His light will always overcome
No matter how we stew.
I hear Him whisper in my doubts,
"Why do you fear and strive,
For I have always promised you,
From this too you will thrive?
I can take what's ugly
And use it for the good,
Redeem all Satan's darts,
Just as I said I would.
And even though the fall is steep,
A purpose grace creates,
And one day we will view it all
And simply celebrate."
Trials are never wasted,
God's purpose still redeems,
His light dispels all darkness
Despite all Satan's schemes.
For God controls the universe,
And nothing is too hard,
For He in all His majesty
Can even use the scarred.
