Why Am I So Surprised?

Why am I so surprised
When healing starts to come
My feet are feeling better
My toes are much less numb
I can feel floor beneath mike
And it feels like solid ground
I’m amazed it’s feeling better
Than it has for many months

Why am I so surprised
When peace comes in the storm
I can’t explain the reason
That I feel no alarm
The waves and wind are higher
And the feeling is not warm
Yet I am sitting calmly
In the center of this storm

His promises come calling
At every time of day
And when we least expect it
They come and overtake
Our healing our deliverance
Our peace and joy and hope
Are all just waiting for us
To take us by surprise

Why am I so surprised
When joy just bubbles forth
I just was lost in sorrow
And was feeling deep remorse
Then an overwhelming feeling
Of unexpected joy
Came up from deep within me
And made my heart rejoice

I shouldn’t be surprised
That His promise comes to pass
But I am
I shouldn’t be surprised
When He answers all my prayers
But I am
His promises are true
His mercy has no end
His grace is so amazing
His love is not pretend

His promises come calling
At every time of day
And when we least expect it
They come and overtake
Our healing our deliverance
Our peace and joy and hope
Are all just waiting for us
To take us by surprise
