Poetry

I Trust In You, My Lord

Oh the mighty waves that roll

Whose whole intent is to steal my soul

And cause me to drown in the deepest depths

But I trust in You, my Lord

Oh the storm that comes at night

Whose only purpose is to cause my sight

To look and fear at its fury and rage

But I trust in You, my Lord

Oh how the darkness would seek to take

My heart and mind to its cruelest state

To bend me low in its servitude

But I trust in You, my Lord

My Lord Who calms the angry seas,

Who stills the storms that rage in me,

My Lord Whose light is my strength and shield

I trust in You, my Lord

    • Thank you so much! I wrote this for a family member who was going through a very difficult time a few years ago. I’ve referred to it many times since during personal struggles and have also been able to pass it on to others to encourage them in difficult times.
