Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor
Karen Holland … 12-24-2007

When the storms rage, and the winds blow
When the waves are high
When our very hearts are shaken
And our strength and courage seem to melt away

Remember the One and Only

The One who the wind and waves obey
The Lord Most High who can calm any storm

He speaks!
“Peace! Be Still!”

Remember — there is NO storm that the Prince of Peace can not calm!

Psalm 107:25-31     He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea. They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end. They cried out to the Lord in their distress; He delivered them from their troubles. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, and for His wonders to the sons of men! 

Mark 4:39     Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

Lord, thank that You can calm any storm, both those around us and those within. Lord, speak to our storms, speak ‘Peace Be Still’. Hush our emotions, dispel confusion and fear, quiet our souls, that we may clearly hear Your voice and be led by Your Spirit. Help us to walk in the Spirit and keep in step. Help us to be still and know you are God!Thank You Lord for the blessing of Your stillness, Your peace — thank You that You are the Prince of Peace. Lead us into Your safe harbor.

    Karen-My husband and I are in the process of filing papers for a ministry in Texas called Safe Harbors, Inc. We’ve been praying for awhile now about the name and my husband wasn’t sold on it until we saw your blog! My husband is a recovering alcoholic with years of sobriety, and we have been facilitating a recovery group for addicts and alcoholics through our church in Dickinson, Tx. for almost four years. Safe Harbors will be a transition house for them to go when they get out of rehab to help them transition back into the community. We wanted to know if we could use your poem (we will give you the credit) on some of our paperwork and flyers, that sort of thing? It touched both of us!

    Sometimes the Lord rides out the storm with us and other times He calms the restless sea around us. Most of all, He calms the storm inside us in our deepest inner soul. –Lloyd John Ogilvie, minister
