Riding the Storm
In the midst of the storm, hold on and wait
strong, gusty winds are reduced to a gentle breeze
heavy downpours of rain are reduced to light showers
chaos and confusion is reduced to peace
anxiety and sadness is changed to joy
fear and doubt is changed to faith
bitterness and hatred is turned into love.
Abide in Him and He in you
invite Him to stir up your gift
as you look to the end of the storm
and see the clear, golden sky
ask what you will in His name
it shall be done.
Mount up with wings as an eagle
soar to heights never before seen
gather the long awaited harvest
that survived the deadliest of storms
your fruit shall feed many
your light will inspire and lead.
– Kym Gordon Moore
