Christ has not abandoned us in our storms, but instead is intimately involved, using them for our ultimate benefit.

From Matthew 14:22-24:  “Immediately He made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while He dismissed the crowds.  And after He had dismissed the crowds, He went up the mountain by Himself to pray.  When evening came, He was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them.”

Fear Not

Life’s storms intensify

Overcoming with fear

Facing each hostile sea

Darkness, nothing seems clear

 

Spiritual squalls come

Turning world upside down

Battered by strongest gales

Fearing each wave’s knockdown

 

Christ’s love intercedes

Praying hands, clay’s potter

Mountains to heavens

Walking on calm water

 

Jesus never leaves us

Storms quietly subside

His blessed protection

Lasting, sovereign guide

 

Fear not, faith’s spark ablaze

Christ’s true light boldly seeds

Following Son of God

Hope ripens from His deeds

From Matthew 14:25-27:  “And early in the morning He came walking toward them on the sea.  But when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, ‘It is a ghost!’  And they cried out in fear.  But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, ‘Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.'”
