In the Eye of Your Storm

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“And [Jesus] arose and rebuked the wind, 
and said unto the sea, ‘Peace, be still.’
And the wind ceased,
and there was a great calm.”
Mark 4:39 NKJV
 
“Like the eye of a storm, peace prevails in
God’s presence, even when chaos ensues all around.
God has a sacred place of immunity from anything
outside His will for us. He will meet you there…”
* Priscilla Shirer
 
Though a storm is raging all around you,
And though you’ve been beset by doubts and cares,
There’s a place of peace amid the fury.
Child, look for Me, for I’ll be there.
 
I’ll meet you in the center of your storm;
And there, you’ll find a respite for your soul,
As I remind you I am there with you;
And have the storm within my full control.
 
So when you are afraid, remember this -
That when it’s time, I’ll call out, “Peace, be still!”
And you will find your faith in Me grow stronger,
As you then see your storm bend to My will.
 
 
“Whenever I am afraid,
I will trust in You.”
Psalm 56:3 NKJV
