HE IS THE MASTER OF THE ELEMENTS, NO MATTER HOW HIGH THE SEA MAY GET, HE IS IN CONTROL. AMEN !
For the Lord God is a sun and a shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11
Have you been there..... when you felt lost ?
Or you couldn't see..... your breath was pretty near cut off ?
Have you felt the high waters coming up to your nostrils ?
Are you struggling for survival, while all hope seems to be gone ?
Wait, listen, somebody is calling your name. He is waving His hand.
Do the howling winds accompany you as background music ?
Does the tossing of the ship represents your life ?
Have you lost your rudder during your travels ?
Are you familiar with defeat, and about to give up?
Stop, get out of this monotonous situation and respond to His call.
He delivers and rescues, and He works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth, Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. Daniel 6:27
HE IS ALL YOU NEED
Surely, all you'll need is Jesus calming the storms in your life,
commanding the winds: "Be thou still", to settle, for good, your strife.
Burning heat of circumstances has already done its harm.
Your wounds became visible, now you're in state of alarm.
. . . .He will be your Helper. . . .
You'll need Him to stop the waters
from flooding your lowest land,
by the touch of the Master and direction of His strong hand.
The raging thunder has to go, be cleared by His mighty voice.
He is very willing and able, but He'll leave you the choice.
. . . .He will be your Master. . . .
Your hurts are so very obvious, you've reached great despair.
You may have a strong notion, that nobody really does care.
Perhaps, that may be possible, but one thing I know for sure,
He will supply you strength, so you may still endure.
. . . .He will be your Comforter. . . .
The balm for your wounds needs to be skillfully applied
by the only Great Physician, Who knows to do it right.
Go make an appointment soon, with the One Who knows the best.
Who provides relief from sorrow, from pain, hurts and all the rest.
. . . .He will be your Healer. . . .
Please, follow the trodden path and take His ONLY Way.
Walk willingly in His footsteps, is all, I sincerely pray.
He will lead you to lush pastures, with much green and open land.
He will lovingly surround you, and watch you don't fall, but stand.
. . . .He will be your Shepherd. . . .
He will be a refreshing breeze in the heat of your painful day,
a hiding place, a rest for your soul and relief from all dismay.
He'll be waiting with open arms, when, in times, you need Him most.
't Will be in your darkest hour, when He is standing at His post.
. . . .He is the Lord God, your Father. . . .
For I, the Lord Your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, "Fear not, I will help you." Isaiah 41:13
"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise," says the Lord; "I will set him in the safety for which he yearns." Psalm 12:5
Commit your ways to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37:5-6
WHEN TO TRUST?
The world is filled with sorrow, pain, and disappointments; stormy nights without stars, long days without sunshine. As we look and see a ray of hope, another crisis knocks us to the ground.
What do we do? Where do we turn?
When is the time to trust? Is it when all is calm, when waves the victors palm and life is one glad
psalm of joy and praise? Nay! but the time to trust is when the waves beat high, when storm
clouds fill the sky. And prayer is one long cry.....O help and save!
When is the time to trust? Is it when friends are true? Is it when comforts woo, and in all we say
or do we meet with praise? Nay! but the time to trust is when we stand alone, and summer birds
have flown, and every prop is gone....
all else but God.
What is the time to trust? Is it some future day, when you have tried your way, and learned to
trust and pray by bitter woe? Nay! but the time to trust is in this moments need, poor, bruised
and broken reed. Poor, troubled soul, make speed to trust thy God.
What is the time to trust? Is it when hopes beat high, when sunshine gilds the sky, and joy and
ecstasy fill all the heart? Nay! but the time to trust is when our joy has fled, when sorrow bows
the head, and all is cold and dead....ALL ELSE BUT GOD.

You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. " I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye." Psalm 32:7-8
You are children of the King; the one who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, the gold in every mine. You are His and He is thine. He has not forsaken you for one minute. He is tenderly watching you through your struggles to see how you will react by the faith that He gave you and that you should have developed and practiced over the years.
By His divine power He has
granted you EVERYTHING pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him
who called you by His own glory and excellence. II Peter 1:3
IN GOD WE TRUST !
In God we trust, even though trials appear
He whispers peace to our hearts, that no ear can hear
He speaks of comfort and our sorrows He'll bear
While in our darkest times God is always there.
He's there to guide us away from evil, pain and earthly lust
and protect his every follower who, in God they trust
God forgives the hearts of many people who do wrong
and fills them up with a joyous, lasting song.
Then, it is He who will watch that no single harm befall us
and forever He'll hear us say.....In God We Trust.
Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22
For He will speak peace to His people and to His saints; but let them not turn back to folly. Psalm 85:8b
The Lord knows your heart. Throw yourself in His lifeline,
surrender all to Him and run the race.
You have nothing to lose, ALL to gain.
Concentrate on what Jesus did for you,
what He means to you, and draw your strength from Him.
Learn to trust Him and excersice your childlike faith.
Jesus is so wonderful, put your head to rest on His shoulder,
lay your burdens at His feet, give Him your hopelessness,
hand Him your dish of sin, allow Him to wipe away your tears.
Yes, allow Him to touch, to heal, to restore, to uplift, to deliver you.
Let Him create something wonderful out of your mess, your pain,
your sorrow, your troubles. He did it before, He will do it again !
