Restful Waters By Brenda Drake

I used to be afraid in times of storm; I would cower under a blanket until it was over.  Then I met Jesus and I now know who is in control.  The Word of God tells of the time Jesus demanded the storm to cease.  There are storms in the spirit where it feels I will be destroyed; but I keep my eyes on Jesus – He takes care of those storms too.

Restful Waters

Jesus calms my troubled sea,
And feeds me in the presence of my enemies.
I am favored and well blessed;
Beside peaceful waters I rest.
Love flows to me and through me the same.
All glory and honor is attributed to Jesus’ name.
His hand of protection covers me by grace,
I am one with Him and firmly set in place,
At His side and deep with within His plan,
I am able to abide in His presence as I am.
Not perfect but perfected by the blood that atones.
Never will I need to stand alone.
The love of God has claimed me to be His bride,
To rule and reign at Jesus’ side.
Fully fixed by the river eternally at rest in every way.
As life and light and joy flood my being I proclaim,
He leads me through the shadows of death;
He is preparing me a place better than I can expect.

Psalms 4:8
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

Psalms 107:28-29
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.  Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
