Look Beyond the storm
Dyane Beaudette

Rise up O my soul and do not be distressed
By what you see and hear and the evil
That appears to be rising
Do not look at the size of the waves
Nor fear the gathering dark clouds
For the Eternal One, Our King and our Lord
Commander of the Angel Armies
Reigns over all and is never shaken
He is closely watching all that is happening
And His heavenly rule will prevail
But you, O my soul stay steadfast and strong
Depend on God’s grace
Guard against the whispering lies
that attempt to take over your thoughts
But rather consider His great love for you
And hold on to the anchor of hope
The ache and longing you feel in your heart
Can not be fulfilled by this world
It is the haunting echoes of Eden
The cry of your heart for the Kingdom of God
And the restoration of all things
So let the voice of your heart
Join with the voice of the Spirit
And in unison cry out
“Even so Lord Jesus come quickly!”

Hebrews 9:28 “…… And now to those who eagerly await Him,
He will appear a second time; not to deal with sin,
but to bring us the fullness of salvation”
Revelation 2:20 “…….He who testifies and affirms these things says,
“Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”
