Life’s full of contradictions.
We pray for rain,
but when rain comes we complain.
“It’s too cold.”
“It’s too wet.”
“I hate rain. I want it to be warm.”
So God grants us the gift of sunshine.
the sun shines down
but people complain,
“It’s too hot.”
“We need shade.”
“Why can’t it rain?”
Life’s full of contradictions
The sun stops shining and the clouds come out.
“Where’s the sun?”
“It’s too cold and dreary.”
“I want nice weather.”
life’s full of contradictions.
Why can’t we appreciate these gifts God gives us?
We complain, and he blesses us.
We complain, and he blesses us.
Life’s full of contradictions.
“Hosannah in the highest!”
And then...
“Crucify Him!”
Life’s full of contradictions.
