And it states in his word in the book of Romans 8:28 (NLT) that, “He makes all things work”…I had that verse given to me as my life verse and recall it every day of my life to remind myself that God is working in my life and making me into the person that He sees me in the future.
How hard this as I am struggling in turmoil of waves that seems to threaten to knock me off or bury me in chaos of storms. I stare at it with fear and with the only hope that lights my heart to courage, one thought, one constant reminder; that God is in control. I think of Peter and can only sympathize that at the moment of faith, and of wondrous acts did he falter in maintaining his view on the true Savior and find himself slipping in darkness. How many times do I find myself walking on water, floating on a cloud that seems to descend with every earthly minute that passes, only to find myself in series of exams that are to prove my growth inside my soul.
My distress I can not express to anyone with ear to hear, my sorrow builds as though I were in a battle and my fingers could not bare to lift the sword another fight that I must face and pray that God gives me the strength. I am exposed and crushed and yet I know my Lord is near, for He loves me dearly and though I know my trials, I fear, in the end I know I will be near to Him and my soul that for the moment breaks and cries with deep anguish will one day become the person that God sees in my future and loves so dear.

One small suggestion here - it would be more of an impact if broken up into smaller paragraphs. I call it being more Reader Friendly. Good thoughts, however.

I really like this kind of first person devotional, which I think works so much better than second person. Some specific examples from your life would give it even more "punch."

In your writing you lay bare your soul, exposing the pain, the weariness, the desperation. For a writer, none of this experience is wasted; it is material for the book God is writing through your life, and material you can use to help others along the way. Instead of writing ABOUT the word "soul," you have revealed it. Bravo!

I agree with what has already been said. Also, towards the end, did you notice that it started to rhyme? You might even be able to create a poem out of this inspirational piece.
