Loud stillness

He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves. What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! Ps. 107:29-30

God calms our stormy thoughts to a whisper and stills the waves of worry. In the harbor of His safe arms we find stillness, rest, and peace. In awareness of His love, in the company of loving friends, in the quiet of prayer and meditation, in the rhythms of His creation is the reassurance that storms pass and that our storms neither define nor defeat us.

Lord, I am grateful that Your love is bigger than any storm I face and that Your stillness is louder than the thundering of disquiet and discouragement.
