Storms of chaos, fears, disability, anger, helplessness
Waves larger and larger till you feel that you will drown
But there is One who can walk right over those huge waves
With one Word, “Peace,” they are gone
Calmness and peace and stillness and smooth water
Cling on to that promise. Slainte, Lisa

Storm swirls, winds howl
But I’m in the boat
Jesus speaks, waves still
I am safe
Held, protected, cherished

On the other side of doors, of fences, of containment, of fear, is freedom.
Freedom to run the fields, eat the grasses, feel the wind, know that you are loved unconditionally.
Freedom is Christ.
“If the Son has set you free, you are free indeed.” ~ John 8:36
Blessings and joy and freedom for your day, Lisa

“Our strength may fail, but our God will not.” ~unknown
When I don’t know, God does.
When I am tired, God’s not.
When I hurt, God carries me.
When I cry, God dries my tears.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you ~Deuteronomy 31:6
Blessings for your day today, Lisa
