Calming the Storm

Storms of anxiety,
Storms of sorrow,
Will be calmed with 
A better tomorrow.

Replaced with faith
As confidence grows
Because He’s with you
And always knows.

So step ahead my friend
And be of good cheer
For He’s in your midst
And knows your fear.

It will be overcome
As you listen to the voice
That tells the truth
And makes you rejoice.

For calming the storms
Is the King of all kings
With amazing power
That faith in Him brings!


Poem by Mark Shields – © 03-10-2022
Inspired by “Calming the Storm”
Thought - Fear is a common roadblock but if we can get to a point where we are willing to focus on Christ who cares for us, our fears can subside so we can act anyway.

Music - As the song Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns points out, the world tells us we’ll never win but the voice of Truth tells us a different story. The voice of Truth says to not be afraid but choose to listen and believe.
