Written by S.C.Mitchell

When all is smooth and calm 
With no breeze to stir the trees - and
With no cloud to hide the sun -  and  the
World seems all at ease - that is the time to seek
The Lord - and thank Him for His loving grace
And for all the goodness He has shown 
In giving us - this quiet - restful 
Place .

And - when the earth is raging -
And the  threat of  war is all around -
That too is when we  need to cry out for
His mercy - while the Lord can still be found 
For our  God will  not forsake us - in the 
Times of  tempest - and  unrest - for
He will hide us - in the shadow of
His wings - until the storm 
Has passed .

For - our God is seeking those -
Who will take Him at His Word - and 
Will thank Him in all seasons - and trust Him as
Their mighty God - for He has placed His courage 
Deep within our spirit - and our soul - and 
Through the fire or the deluge - as we
Trust Him - He will bring us
Through - and make
Us whole .

For it's not the life of ease - that
Makes a soldier - or a warrior for the
Lord - but - it's courage - and the arm of faith 
That wields the mighty sword - for - as diamonds
Come through pressure - when the rocks are
Blast in two - so the Lord brings forth  His
Glorious Church - through brokenness -
And fortitude - and then makes
Us brand new .

And what a Glorious sight that 
would be . 


There are times through great difficulties and 
trials in our lives  where  we have  to stand our 
ground and be counted for that which is good ...

And through all the uncertain times .. and in the
good times we need to  draw close to  the Lord 
while He can still be found .. and to trust that He
will be with us  and will help us .. and make us
courageous and strong .

Many Blessings to you
