When the Storm Comes

Lord, you never said you came to 

fix all of our problems.

You never said, if we follow you,

we are free from heartache or pain.

But what you did say is…

“I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”

You’re with us in the boat 

when the storm blows in.

You’re at the hospital when

we’re sick and afraid.

You’re in the empty nest with us;

the graveside with us,

the lawyer’s office with us,

the bank, the car, 

the late night feeding and praying sessions.

You are there, holding our hand,

breathing life into our hearts, 

reminding us that we have a savior and friend.

Thank you, Lord, for always being there.
