In the middle of the storm, I felt God smile
All my fears faded, if only for a while
Though it was dark and stormy, the tempest winds flew
In that darkest moment, I knew I'd make it through

I felt that peaceful smile, shine down from above
All in an instant, I was flooded with His love
The storm was not yet over, had a fight ahead
I had to take hold of, the Bible words I'd read

Remember that He loves you, He shall never leave
Cast your cares upon Him, and in His name believe
He's the breath that I breathe, the Rock of Salvation
He's the Lord Almighty, God of all creation

So when your tempest hits, and darkness is around
Know that God is with you, and feel His peace deep down
Know that you can make it, that God will keep you strong
The darkness will fade and the Light will come along

I can imagine this one a hymn in church. I admire your faith -- I have faith, too, but mine, I'm afraid, isn't nearly as open as it could be. I'm not even sure I want it as open as yours is -- I'm not sure why; I really enjoyed this, though.

Oh, Becky, I love this poem and it must be in the book.
"He's the breath that I breathe". Magnificent!  Love, Ellie

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.

Beautiful and all so true

The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
