We spent Labor Day weekend at Camp Comeca near Cozad, Nebraska. It was nice; more like being in a hotel than camping. On Sunday morning we sung a new-to-me hymn. One of the lyrics really touched my heart: “Be still my soul; the waves and the wind still know the Christ who ruled them while He dwelt below.”
What a poetic reminder! The forces behind the trials in our lives are subject to the Lord just as the wind and waves were in Mark 4:35-41. I’m going to tuck that lyric into my bag of tricks for when I am freaking out. Be still my soul; the wind and waves still obey Him.
