The One who calmed the storm,
Stilled the waves.
Lord Jesus is His holy name.
In Jesus Christ, all things hold together.
When tumultuous wind triggers the rough sea,
I remember my Lord and His saving grace.
He grants me peace that passes understanding.
I remain calm above the storm.
I have the mind of Christ.
As the risen Lord is, so am I in this world.
Calm, still and patient.
Seated with Him, with heavenly riches.
Now I look around
The wind died down
So did panic and frustration
His love endures forever.
In this world we will have trouble.
But take heart! Lord Jesus have overcome the world.

Oh, what a year it’s been, a small flu shut the whole world down. It held numerous on the floor, many on the couch, some at home locked down without a warning. We panicked, shopped, outran the witty, tweeted a hint of support for many who needed any.
We watch and wait, watch and go, wait and sanitize as we go. Thoughts of distancing cross our minds umpteen times a day to prompt our children, nudge their cool-headedness, sneak out for their safety. Check on gran, SMS a friend, shop with our siblings, smile at strangers. Can’t wait to know the truth, when this will end.
But this is my comfort. This is my hiding place and my resting place. The truth that lies beneath my flesh, in the aura of my heart..
..in Christ Jesus all things hold together. Colossians 1:17
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8
Yes, it’s true. Numerous downloads of strength from His word and daily fresh grace of my loving heavenly father are my joy and delight.
Praying for you all. Cheers!
