Dark clouds are looming above
And the weather takes itís toll
Breathing becomes labored
As the winds rip out your soul

This storm is getting stronger
The end is very near
The Earth is crying louder
Should we begin fear

This question can be haunting
And a reality hard to face
But if you know the truth
Godís blessed you with His grace

The Bible is the source of reason
Godís Word is full of detail
With peace and understanding
We are able to exhale

There is a silver lining
And the sun begins to shine
Breathing now comes easy
And No longer do we pine

With Christ as our Savior
The Spirit makes us whole
Filling us with wisdom
As He serenades our soul

Protected from this climate
As beacons we glow bright
Lighting up the pathway
Steering others from the night

Our doors are left wide open
So itís Jesus that they see
Inviting in the stranger
The Gospel sets them free

Praise be to our Father
The Master makes the call
Itís victory for His kingdom
That Heís promised to us all

The title and the flow of your poem work together to paint a marvelous picture of grace.

Be careful of the word it's--with an apostrophe, it means it is or it has. You wanted its in your first stanza. Similarly, I'd encourage you to use more punctuation in your poem. Traditional rhymed and metered poetry is typically punctuated just as prose is, and I think that would make improve your poem's flow.

I like the way you incorporated this week's prompt, and your poem was quite lovely.
