When the Storm Rages

Our family is encountering a particularly tough time.  I will not recount any particulars because I respect my children's privacy.  However, at a time when emotions are raw, I'm learning how great is the love of my Heavenly Father.

When the storm rages
the flesh struggles
and the heart is pained.

When the storm rages
doubts arise
and the mind cannot comprehend.

When the storm rages
each breath 
becomes a matter of will.

When the storm rages
nights are sleepless
the days an emotional haze.

When the storm rages
conversations ensue
questions need answers.

"Lord, I feel betrayed."

"My daughter, I was betrayed."

"Lord, I gave my love."

"My daughter, I gave my Son."

"Lord, I poured my life into him."

"My daughter, I poured my life out for you."

"Lord, I can't."

"My daughter, I can."

When the storm rages
He is there
My God is faithful.

When the storm rages
 He gently holds me
through prayers and hugs.

When the storm rages
He is a rock
the stability in the unstable.

When the storm rages
I will stand firm
He will strengthen me.

He is My Shelter in a Time of Storm.

Praise God!
