Sometimes He calms the storm…

Sometimes God calms the storm, and other times He calms His child.  How the words to this song ring so true.  When I ask for healing…healing may or may not occur.  God may desire me to suffer through the doubt and pain and trust Him through the illness. 

I ask him to restore a precious relationship.  But he may not allow or cause that restoration.  At least not right now.  And it’s often during these times that I grow the most and learn to lean on God.  Faith, Trust, and Obedience is what he requires of me today. 

I often forget the fact that God’s timing is not my timing.  His ways are not always my ways, because He is God and I am not.

 Sometimes He calms the storm, by Scott Krippayne

All who sail the sea of faith
Find out before too long
How quickly blue skies can grow dark
And gentle winds grow strong

Suddenly fear is like white water
Pounding on the soul
Still we sail on knowing
That our Lord is in control

Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn’t mean He will

Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child

He has a reason for each trial
That we pass through in life
And though we’re shaken
We cannot be pulled apart from Christ

No matter how the driving rain beats down
On those who hold to faith
A heart of trust will always
Be a quiet peaceful place
