"How Like Jesus" by Gloria Gaither

Monday, November 12, 2012

emoticon How like Jesus to speak to the Storm;
How like us to think we should build better boats,
Take more sailing lessons,
Store up more provisions.
emoticon How like Jesus to Speak to the Storm.
We are all a little nervous in America;
Somebody messed with Our Boat,
And most of us are figuring out how much stuff
We should store up.
How many Sailing Lessons we ought
To Take?
How much ammunition we should store under the seats for protection
From Pirates?
How many Life Jackets?
emoticon Can I remind you Who You Are?
You are the Children of a King, and He
Speaks to the Storm.
emoticon Now they can implode the Twin Towers
of the World Trade Center,
But they can't destroy our Strong
Tower of Faith.
They can undermine our Economy,
But they can't take away our riches in
Christ Jesus.
They can destroy our National Systems
of Transportation,
But they can't cause our reservation to
Fly away to Glory to be cancelled.
They can make us question Our
National Security,
But they can NEVER destroy a
Peace That Passes All Understanding.
emoticon And maybe you have felt bombarded
by information
And news, and Voices in the media
This week why don't you turn off the TV, unplug your Computer
And listen to the Still Small Voice
that says
emoticon "My Peace I Give To You, Not As
The World Giveth, give I unto you.
Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled,neither
let it be afraid."
emoticon This peace doesn't come from the
Ship and Supplies;
It comes from the Voice that stills
the storm,
And most of the storm is in us.
It was in us before the Trade
Tower incident,
And that's where the chaos ALWAYS
comes from.
emoticon Once we get THAT storm settled,
No other Storms can disrupt our lives.
Because Life is Eternal and Life Wins!
emoticon emoticon emoticon You hear me? LIFE WINS!!
