I'm surprised that you haven't gotten any comments on this.

This piece resonated with me, and I can tell you I was exactly in this place this week, and today was the day I awoke to find peace and rest.

You captured the emotions and the need for us to be broken, to break our will down so God's will can enter. I know exactly how it feels to be "all but deaf in this storm" and the "pain so much more than I can bear".

I love the image of our will "from desires that distract" building forcefully and traversing an ocean before breaking on the shore, and the "raging storms I created" because that's exactly how it is.

Thank you for writing this, I think God meant it just for me this week.
