MAY 2016


Be strong - faint heart - when storms are crashing round 
You - and remember Him - who sleeps unruffled by the lashing
Waves  - and know - that when He wakes - it isn't to a panicked
Wondering - if He is able to abate the raging gale - but - with authority
And faith - He speaks  into the tempest's roaring - and bids it cease its angry
Blast - and then - above the loudest crashing - He stills the sea - and 
Calms the churning water - and brings His peace and
Rest to pass .

How many times - have we been in such tempests ? - and
Cannot see beyond our outstretched arms - and wondered - is
There an ending - to this present danger - or an easing from those
Things that mean us harm ? - Oh - trusting soul - hold on a little longer -
Though all is darkness now - it must give way to light - so hold on fearless
To the hand of Jesus - as God is working for your good -
All through the night .

Yes - only He can still the troubled waters - and only He can
Part the mighty sea - so trust in Him a little longer - and don't give
In to doubt and human frailty - for He has heard your cry for help - and
Knows your desparation - however weak and feeble it has sounded in your
Ears - but - be assured - the God - who made the Heavens - is the same 
God who calms the raging storms - and banishes
Your fears .

So hold by faith - the words that have been written - that say -
You will not drown - when floods surround you - nor be burnt - when walking
Through the  fire - for God will be your Shield and your Protector - and He will bring
You through to safety - by His Almighty Power - for He is mindfull of the smallest sparrow
And we - my friends - are far more valuable - than they could ever be - so -
 Trust today - the God - who stills the waters - and believe - that He
Will always be concerned for
You and me .


Some who are reading these words today may be going through really tough and
fearful situations, but, I want to encourage you to put your trust in the One who
Knows all about you , and also who can bring you through every situation
however bleak things may seem at this moment .

I pray Isaiah 43 v 2 will encourage you as it has me on many occasions .

God bless and keep you

Stella ><
