Storm

The storms of life, rage all around

With great ferocity

Contrary winds, a battle ground

Beat down, relentlessly

Stand still my friend and trust in God

Through conflict, grief or pain

Hold fast in faith, for one day soon

The tide will turn, again

 

At times, still waters contradict

The bleak and battered shore

Deep imprints in the sand, depict

A storm, that's gone before

They point to violent, angry blasts,

The cruel surge, of life

Of peace, engulfed, of troubled pasts

Eroded hope, and strife

 

Another storm, infused with dread

Will one day reach the shore

Dark clouds will gather overhead

Just as they've done, before

But with each deluge, short or long

However God has planned

Life's debris will be washed away

And He will smooth the sand

 

 

On Tuesday, I emailed a friend and unintentionally waxed lyrical about the roller coaster of the past few months, likening it standing on the sea shore and bracing for the next wave ... it was rather late. She mailed back and told me to write it down. Turn it into a book, she said. This made me smile, as none of my real life friends bar one, are aware of my faithwriters exploits. I am not a writer, but last night when my brain was working overtime - I seem to function nocturnally which is not conducive to an ordered life, something I'm working on, I jotted down some thoughts in the hope that someone, somewhere, will be encouraged.

Yesterday evening, we looked at Acts 27. I was amazed and deeply encouraged by the message, but I should not have been. It was undoubtedly a word in season, from God. I may add a synopsis of the study, at some point :)

 



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
