Don't give in to despair - my friend - however hard it may be
Knocking at your door - get up - and throw wide the windows - and 
Pick your sorrows off the floor - then place those memories in a safe 
Place - until the storm has passed - and face into the maelstrom - with
Its cold Nor'eastly blast - and - even though the vessel may be broken -
And the cargo thrown o'erboard - take courage - for there's 
Land ahead - and God will always keep  
His Word .

He has spoken - none will perish - He has seen us safe thus far - 
He is mindful of the current - and the lashing waves of fear - but  He
Says to be courageous - and to cast our cares on Him - as He still knows -
How to get us safe to land - when we reach out in trust - and swim - or
He may send angelic driftwood for us to cling  on tightly to - 
Believing - without wavering - that He will
Bring us safely 

So expect the unexpected - in whatever shape or form - and let go 
Of melancholy - that would only keep us down - and - stay in the boat 
Together - that way we will not drown - then praise the Maker of the 
Circumstance - who includes us in His plans - and accept the way 
He leads us - with His Almighty hands - The storms will cease - 
The fear will pass - and all things will - turn out for our good - and 
May the Glory and the Honour - go to our Awesome God - who
Freely gives us His Salvation - through His Son - 
Our Saviour and 
Our Lord .

So - trust Him in the darkest night - or the fiercest
Storm - and never doubt  that - the God - who 
Is mindful of the sparrow -  will 
Also bring us - safely 
Home .


This poem came about after I heard a sermon from 
Acts 27 . where it tells us how the Apostle Paul was 
heading to Rome , where God said he would go , but 
on the journey there was a great storm for two weeks ,
and just before the ship reached Malta it was broken 
to pieces .. However , all aboard with him were kept
safe and landed on the shore .

Sometimes we go through terrible storms ... but when 
God says in His Word that He will bring us safely through ,
He means it ...

So if you feel like you are being battered right now and 
don't know which way to turn ...trust in Jesus ....He will
not fail you nor forsake you ....and He will get you safely 
Home to Himself .

God bless you
