8-9-14 In the Storm

stormy sea by alex linde

The world is filled with evil ev’ry day,

And millions cry to Heaven for relief.

“Why don’t You stop this madness?” many pray;

The Christ they know would not allow such grief.

The opposition to His name is great

But this creates much opportunity

To let the Saviour in us actuate

Whatever Spirit bids us do and be.

Now listen, let the Father’s Will proclaim,

And know that Christ can still the tempest storm.

Have faith, my friend, and act upon His name;

The greater faith, the greater you conform.

The perfect plan of God’s a mystery

To all but those whose faith has set them free.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He said to them, “Why are you so afraid?

Have you still no faith?”

Mark 4:40 ESV

  1. You have captured not only the cry of the unsaved but the saved in this prose. Thank you, Jay, you have done it again. Why do bad things happen to good people? Deuteronomy 8:2 says that our heart’s response is being tested. Whatever does not kill us, will make us stronger.
