The Storm

In praying about the appearance of all types of storms, whether they be of the weather, physical, financial, I have been led to the first verse of a hymn which I find to be consoling.

In heavenly Love abiding,

No change my heart shall fear;

And safe is such confiding,

For nothing changes here.

The storm may roar without me,

My heart may low be laid;

But God is round about me,

And can I be dismayed?

When I begin my prayer with the above verse, peace comes and quietens my thought while I lay all on the altar.  God is in control!

The Storm

Last night we had quite a storm with quarter-sized hail and strong winds with thunder and lightening.  Large limbs were blown off our trees and bounced upon and off our roof.  Knowing I needed to work about releasing fear and anxiety, I do what I always do.  Pray.  After working with the 91st Psalm, I was gently reminded of a verse of a favorite hymn that reads,

“The storm my roar without me,

My heart may low be laid;

But God is round about me,

And can I be dismayed?”

Peace soon replaced fear and this morning, my husband found no damage to either of our cars or roof.  I am so grateful for the protection we received.
