It is so easy for me to sit here and write "Fear not...," while there are close friends on both coasts that are bracing for hurricanes. What do I write to them? What can I possibly say that might minister to them? Only what HE tells me to...
I know One Who is greater than
the storm will ever be.
At His word, the waves calm and
He walks upon the sea!
His hand, it covers me until
the storms have all passed by.
I may lose what I have in this life,
but I will not die!
His Blood--it guarantees me life
that does not have an end!
He lets me call Him "Master," "Savior,"
and He calls me "friend!"
He doesn't give me all the answers,
but He gives me peace;
the same, for it enables me to,
all my fears, release!
His Name is Jesus! He is greater
far than any storm!
Give your heart unto Him and,
such peace, in you, will form!
He is that Peace. He will protect you
as the days progress.
Trust in Him. Believe in Him.
Your life He'll truly bless!
Sure, it's easy for me to sit here in the calm and write this. But I have been on that island with hurricane warnings going on, and I've been through tornadoes when walls are disappearing! In both cases, Jesus was there with us and His peace and Presence got us through.
Please join me in praying for those people affected by these hurricanes.
