Stormy Times


Some  storms in life

Are sent to wake us up

Make us realize

We need to change course

Show us where

We’ve made a wrong turn

Turn us back to focusing

On Jesus Christ Our Lord

Then again we will be

A useful and powerful

On fire force for Him

Other storms in life

Occur when we are

Right  on course for Him

Satan testing our faith

Satan testing our trust in Jesus

Jesus  is our life raft 

He’s  ready to help and guide us

Ready to immediately start

But Jesus won’t start

Unless we ask

He is waiting for us to call out

Telling Him what the storm is about.

So next time your life

Has storms all around

Take time out

Draw near to Jesus

Asking Him the reason

Stormy times in your life abound.

Luke 8:22 (CEB)

One day Jesus and his disciples boarded a boat. He said to them, “Let’s cross over to the other side of the lake.” So they set sail.

23 While they were sailing, he fell asleep. Gale-force winds swept down on the lake.The boat was filling up with water and they were in danger.

24 So they went and woke Jesus, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to
drown!” But he got up and gave orders to the wind and the violent waves. The storm died down and it was calm.

25 He said to his disciples, “Where is your faith? ”Filled with awe and wonder, they said to each other, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him!”
