Storm

I remember hearing “Storm” by Lifehouse in the Fall of 2007 when I got the CD. I identified with the song so much.  I got to thinking about “Storm” over the weekend while at my daughter’s ballet performance.  I have often hoped to see her choreograph a dance to this song and see her perform it.  I think many people can relate to the song.

I’m glad the song came to mind.  It captures a lot of how I feel at this time in my life.  I know that to struggle with various situations in life is good for our growing.  I know I have had my share of struggles… as I am sure you have too.  A couple of weeks ago Brad on a Wednesday night with tears in his eyes (not an uncommon occurrence) talked about those with deep wells.  Those wells having been bored out of tremendous hurt, pain, and suffering.  It’s through having these deep wells the greater capacity for others to draw God’s water from.

I have always desired nothing less than being used by God for the benefit of others.  I’m ready for the digging to stop for a bit and let me be used for the benefit of others.  If I could have written one verse in this song it would have been this one:

…I know you didn’t
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I’m so used to living underneath the surface…

 

how long have I
been in this storm
so overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form
water’s getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing over my head

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I’d see you
the darkness will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and everything is alright

I know you didn’t
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I’m so used to living underneath the surface

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I’d see you
this darkness would turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright

and I will walk on water
you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright
I know everything is alright
everything’s alright
