Feelings of Uncertainty

From Matthew 8:24-26:  “A windstorm arose on the sea, so great that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but He [Jesus] was asleep.  And they went and woke Him up, saying, ‘Lord, save us!  We are perishing!’  And He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid, you of little faith?’  Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a dead calm.”

Threatened again by life’s turbulent storms

Feeling life adrift, outside of God’s norms


Feelings of uncertainty rise and bubble up

Flooding hearts with doubt, an empty cup


Walking life’s endless road challenges us

Experiencing feelings of fear, never a plus


Darkness quietly creeps into our peaceful place

Feeling alone, faith weakens from our daily race


Our Lord, never far away from our uncertain life walk

Replacing doubt, His Word will stand up as our rock


Our Father never leaves us feeling alone at life’s curb

Growing through His love, always fulfilling and superb


Seeking our Holy God in the best of times

Finding Him in the midst of darkest climbs


Our Lord’s steady presence strengthens our resolve

Calming our darkest fears, they simply will dissolve


God’s love never wavers, a bright eternity to be filled

Answering prayers, restoring each soul, faith rebuilds

From the words of Christian author Lee Strobel, “Struggling with God over the issues of life doesn’t show a lack of faith–that is faith.”

  1. I love your rhyme and rhythm and the message, Richard. Yes, “Our Father never leaves us feeling alone at life’s curb” … thank God, He always is with us… even when we are Difficult People!!
