Sometimes life is full of stormy weather. While we are enjoying warmer weather and melting ice and snow life has been tumultuous. The following are the lyrics to a song I learned a long time ago at a Vacation Bible School.
When a boat sailed in the stormy waters
and ordered the winds to cease
Calming the stormy sea
Lord, give me strength to be unafraid
When I feel the storms around me
Come in and calm my trouble heart
and stay with me
Be close to me
This is one of the songs that I sing to the kids every night at bedtime. They call it the “Storm Song.” Tonight when I sang it I fought to hold back tears. I know that God is with me. He is my peace in times of trouble and my shelter in the storm.
