"Master, the tempest is raging and the billows are tossing high. The sky is o'er shadowed with blackness. Oh, no shelter or help is nigh. Carest Thou not that we perish? How can, how can Thou lie asleep?"Good morning, child of the King. The words of the song above reflect how we often behave when we have a storm whose duration lasts past what we consider to be an appropriate time span for a storm to last. Don't be worried about the storm that is raging in your life right now. Storm season will be over after a while. Just remember that you have an anchor, Who is the Solid Rock. Look at the words of the song below that was written by Ruth Caye Jones:
In times like these, you need a SaviorYou just keep praying for your faith to be strengthed with each day; remember that the grass is still growing green, and step on my child, step on! Take it from a battle-scarred soldier, God will take care of you. It is my prayer that peace be still in your life.
In times like these, you need an anchor
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.
Doing What I Can, While I Can Because I Care,
Alma L. Stepping On Jones
Often storms are like political posturing - a public show of military or political power that is intended to worry an opponent: Opposition groups fear violence, after weeks of military muscle-flexing from the government. Physically strong and powerful. (as) Tough as old boots idiom. Almighty is how our adversaries would have us think of them. That is not true. This is the way that our adversaries actually are in the grand scheme of this world.
Remember that our God can take in impossible and make it so!
