Or you couldn't see... your breath was pretty near cut off?
Have you felt the high waters coming up to your nostrils?
Are you struggling for survival, while all hope seems to be gone?
Wait, listen, somebody is calling your name. He is waving His hand.
calming the storms in your life,
commanding the winds: "Be thou still",
to settle, for good, your strife.
Burning heat of circumstances
has already done its harm.
Your wounds became visible,
now you're in state of alarm.
. . . .He will be your Helper. . . .
You'll need Him to stop the waters
from flooding your lowest land,
by the touch of the Master
and direction of His strong hand.
The raging thunder has to go,
be cleared by His mighty voice.
He is very willing and able,
but He'll leave you the choice.
. . . .He will be your Master. . . .
Your hurts are so very obvious,
you've reached great despair.
You may have a strong notion,
that nobody really does care.
Perhaps, that may be possible,
but one thing I know for sure,
He will supply you strength,
so you may still endure.
. . . .He will be your Comforter. . . .
The balm for your wounds
needs to be skillfully applied
by the only Great Physician,
Who knows to do it right.
Go make an appointment soon,
with the One Who knows the best.
Who provides relief from sorrow,
from pain, hurts and all the rest.
. . . .He will be your Healer. . . .
Please, follow the trodden path
and take His ONLY Way.
Walk willingly in His footsteps,
is all, I sincerely pray.
He will lead you to lush pastures,
with much green and open land.
He will lovingly surround you,
and watch you don't fall, but stand.
. . . .He will be your Shepherd. . . .
He will be a refreshing breeze
in the heat of your painful day,
a hiding place, a rest for your soul
and relief from all dismay.
He'll be waiting with open arms,
when, in times, you need Him most.
't Will be in your darkest hour,
when He is standing at His post.
. . . .He is the Lord God, your Father. . . .

stormy nights without stars, long days without sunshine.
As we look and see a ray of hope, another crisis knocks
us to the ground. What do we do? Where do we turn?
When is the time to trust? Is it when all is calm,
when waves the victors palm and life is one glad psalm
of joy and praise? Nay! but the time to trust is when
the waves beat high, when storm clouds fill the sky.
And prayer is one long cry... O help and save!
When is the time to trust? Is it when friends are true?
Is it when comforts woo, and in all we say or do
we meet with praise? Nay! but the time to trust is
when we stand alone, and summer birds have flown,
and every prop is gone... all else but God.
What is the time to trust? Is it some future day,
when you have tried your way, and learned to trust
and pray by bitter woe? Nay! but the time to trust is
in this moments need, poor, bruised and broken reed.
Poor, troubled soul, make speed to trust thy God.
What is the time to trust? Is it when hopes beat high,
when sunshine gilds the sky, and joy and ecstasy fill
all the heart? Nay! but the time to trust is when
our joy has fled, when sorrow bows the head,
and all is cold and dead... ALL ELSE BUT GOD.

By His divine power He has granted you EVERYTHING pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called you by His own glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3
He whispers peace to our hearts, that no ear can hear
He speaks of comfort and our sorrows He'll bear
While in our darkest times God is always there.
He's there to guide us away from evil, pain and earthly lust
and protect his every follower who, in God they trust
God forgives the hearts of many people who do wrong
and fills them up with a joyous, lasting song.
Then, it is He who will watch that no single harm befall us
and forever He'll hear us say... In God We Trust.

Concentrate on what Jesus did for you, what He means to you, and draw
your strength from Him. Learn to trust Him and exercise your childlike faith.
Jesus is so wonderful, put your head to rest on His shoulder, lay your burdens at His feet,
He did it before, He will do it again!
In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry for help before Him came into His ears. Psalm 18:6
If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven , and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
