Darkness will often creep up on us and embrace us like a warm blanket, and by the time we realize that it’s trying to take every ounce of our strength, it’s usually too late. Looking back now, I realize that I lived under a black cloud for many years. It was only when I truly discovered my Lord, my Savior, that things started to change.
Black clouds over head
They silently wreaked their harm
The cunningness of Satan
Wielding and manipulating his charm.
Black clouds overhead
The enemy was hard to spot
Then Jesus took my hand
He told me the battle was already fought.
I did not notice the black clouds
Until they started to move
Entrenched in disharmony
Entrenched in a negative groove.
What was that darkness overhead?
Was it evil trying to mar another day!
My God stepped forth, He made a clearing
A Spiritual clearing along my way.
I focused my mind on that clearing,
Taking care to avoid the black cloud.
For ages you silently covered my head,
No longer Satan! Remove your shroud.
