Tempest Brewing

From Psalm 89:8-9:  “Lord God of hosts, who is as mighty as you, O LordYour faithfulness surrounds you.  You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.”

Approaching storms

Burdened with fear

Now darkness forms

Hope’s light unclear


Tempest brewing

Drowning with fright

Life’s undoing

Faith must invite


Our Prince of Peace

Seeing our plight

Renews life’s lease

Turns night to light


Lord’s mighty voice

Storm’s rage resigns

Angels rejoice

Peace rules divine


Heart’s calmness grows

Lord takes control

Dark chaos slows

Christ on patrol

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.”

Here is a familiar hymn, “Eternal Father, Strong to Save.”  While I have used this hymn in the past, this shortened version features the true intensity of the “tempest brewing.”  We can always look to our Father’s strength to help us persevere.

  1. “Christ on patrol.”-For so many reasons, this resonated in my soul, Richard. It brought tears to my eyes thinking of being tossed about on a sea. The video was hauntingly poignant and satisfying. There’s a peace knowing to whom we are anchored. My Dad and I were sharing this with one another this morning. God bless you!
