You've really captured the sorrow and profound despair many dear folks live with in the first half of your piece. Wonderfully, there's more to it. Our hope is in the Lord, Who will make all things new. Nicely done.
I loved this phrase...
"in its wake tranquility pours forth."

Peace, peace... oh, sweet sacred peace.

Wing His Words
You've tossed about the contradictory feelings of one distraught or excited. These sentences..."Lord, help me still this sickening feeling within my heart,Let me fade into insignificance; or electrify me into a whirlwind of activity," reminded me of scripture that talked about being lukewarm, instead of hot or cold. How God dislikes it when we can't decide and toggle the fence in lukewarm attitudes, instead of getting on with our life. Excellent teaching piece! Thank you!
The emotion of this piece touched me in so many ways. Your message came through.
