The breeze was blowing strong and warm,
Just like it does before a storm.
The sounds of rustling leaves were everywhere.
And as they did their backward dance,
I thought to take a backward glance;
And saw the storm clouds building in the air.
I turned for home, since I could see
A storm was bearing down on me.
The warning signs were all certainly there.
Another storm is coming soon.
It could come morning, night, or noon –
As Jesus will return to claim His own.
His Word says there are clearly signs
To warn us of the coming time.
And He is anxious, waiting on His throne.
And when the time is right He’ll be
Up in the clouds, and calling me!
But I will not be going there, alone.
All who have placed their trust in Christ
Will rise to greet eternal life.
Will you be there, accompanying me Home?
“He answered them: ‘When evening comes you say,
‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’
And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy
because the sky is red and threatening.’
You know how to read the appearance of the sky,
but you can’t read the signs of the times.’”
Matthew 16:2-3 HCSB
