“Storms in Our Life”

The wind has a voice,
Sometimes soft,
Sometimes harsh.
And it travels the world,
Sometimes short,
Sometimes far.

Stormy landscape; Clouds dark sky, the turbulent ocean

It teaches us caution,
To be ware of its signs.
It moves us and guides us,
We pay heed to its whines.

But there is still a power
That it must answer to.
For God gives it its breath
As He first gave to you.

But, there is more
He longs to give you.
Look to Him now,
He’ll guide you anew.

For we, unlike the wind
Cannot all just storm about.
There’s a reason we are here;
Let our life speak it out.

In all of our manners
Keep love first in sight.
With mercy to guide us,
Shine forth its bright light.

We’re in need of shelter,
A break from the winds.
Till the darkness has past,
And the wind softly sings.

May the dear Lord, now bring
Much peace to your heart.
Let Him carry and guide you
To places quite far.

And just remember
When it storms and it gales,
The words of this poem
Are not the words of a tale.

For God is our rock
And our shelter for sure.
He’s the safety we crave
And our storm’s only cure.
