Quiet Life’s Turbulence

From Psalm 107:28-29:  “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out from their distress; He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.  Then they were glad because they had quiet, and He brought them to their desired haven.”

Life meeting relentless turbulence

Perpetual, never ending storms

Shaken by overwhelming defeat

Sinking beneath unending harsh swarms

 

Downtrodden, now hungry and thirsty

Clinging to life, in darkness and gloom

Shackled by sin’s shame, harshest irons

God’s steadfast love delivers from doom

 

Crying out to our Father above

At final end of life’s fraying rope

Nowhere else to turn, escape darkens

Realizing now, God’s way restores hope

 

Cutting and freeing lives from bondage

Storm’s wrath consumed by transformation

Into valley of richest harvests

Redeeming lost souls from damnation

 

Fleeing life’s turmoil, rescued by God

Trusting Him leads to gladness and praise

Faith grows by yards instead of inches

Life’s turbulence quiets, hope ablaze

From American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “God knows we sometimes need to reach the end of our own resources before we will turn to Him.”
