The Storm | Flying Colors

Several weeks ago, I shared a video The Call from the Neal Morse Band. It was different in that it was a long song clocking in at over 10 minutes. One of the projects that Neal Morse is also involved in is called Flying Colors. I’ve been listening to their stuff lately and love this song called The Storm. Here are the lyrics:

There was a time
When my life was easy
Stretched out in the sun
Everything was clover
The world was off my shoulders for awhile

But then the sky turned a bomb fire shade
And hit me like a gun
It passed with flying colors
There’s no flying over…

The storm…
We will dance as it breaks
The storm…
It will give as it takes
And all of our pain is washed away
Don’t cry or be afraid
Some things only can be made
In the storm

Sometimes we get swept away
We’re forced to take the change
The desert gives you comfort
You can’t stay here all your wounded life

Underneath as the tempest rage
Your secrets come undone
When mountains need movin’
Let me help you through it

The storm…
We will dance as it breaks
The storm…
Comes as fast as it fades
And all of our pain is washed away
Don’t cry or be afraid
Some things only can be made
In the storm

All your secrets come undone
Every web you’ve ever spun
All your secrets come undone
Let ’em go
Let it come…

The storm…
We will dance as it breaks
The storm…
Gives you more than it takes
And all of our pain is washed away
Stare chaos in the face
We need only to embrace

Don’t cry or be afraid
Some things only can be made
In the storm

This song reminded me of two scripture passages. One is found in Romans 5

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

The other is found in James 1

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

Perhaps this morning, you are going through a storm in life. Use is as an opportunity to grow. This song is a reminder of that…some things can only be made in the storm.
