When in our lives trials and tribulations come
Those which severely test our hopes and fears
Simply remember always this wonderful promise
Our Lord and savior will always be very near

When it seems our hopes and dreams are fading
And nothing in our lives is going right anymore
You can always rely on His tender promises
While in His living word you can be quite sure

When the hordes of hell each day surround us
With the enemy constantly knocking at our doors
It is the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ
Which shall bring restful peace to us evermore

He alone is our fortress from life’s raging storms
Protecting us from the touch of disease and pestilence
He will be our shining body armor each day we live
Shielding us with His Spirits power like a golden fence

So as days come where you feel you cannot last
When life’s problems you cannot take any more
Our Lord will not let you sit alone and suffer
In His enduring promise, you can be quite sure.

Mark 4, 35-40
That day when evening came, he said to his disciples,
“Let us go over to the other side.”
Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as
he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with
him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over
the boat so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in
the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke
him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we
drown?” He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the
waves “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and
it was completely calm. He said to his disciples,
“Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this?
Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

I share the song below for all of Gods children
who are in the path of the storms, Hurricanes
Irma, and Jose, and those who are facing and
recovering from other storms in their lives.
Know that the Lord Jesus is with you and will
always be there.

Keep Faith in His living word. This song I
I sang continually through the night, while
in New Jersey with my family. I sent them
down to the peace of our basement as Hurricane
Sandy was hitting the shores and bearing down
on everyone. And we could feel a certain
peace as it went around us on both sides.
God bless you all and know you are all in my
prayers. The Lord Jesus is with us always!
I have been singing this song while also praying
since yesterday in my spirit for the Lord to bless
us all with His peace and I will until the storm resides!

Peace Be Still
Rev. James Cleveland

Master, the tempest is raging
The billows are tossing high
The sky is o’er shadowed with blackness
No shelter or help is nigh
Carest Thou not that we perish?
How canst Thou lie asleep
When each moment so madly is threatening
A grave in the angry deep?
The winds and the waves shall obey my will, peace be still
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea
Or demons or men or whatever it be
No water can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean and earth and skies
They shall sweetly obey my will
Peace be still, peace be still
They all shall sweetly obey my will, peace, peace be still
Master, with anguish of spirit
I bow in my grief today
The depths of my sad heart are troubled
Oh, waken and save, I pray
Torrents of sin and of anguish
Sweep o’er my sinking soul
And I perish, I perish, dear Master
Oh, hasten and take control
The winds and the waves shall obey my will, peace be still
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea
Or demons or men or whatever it be
No water can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean and earth and skies
They shall sweetly obey my will
Peace be still, peace be still
They all shall sweetly obey my will, peace, peace be still
Master, the terror is over
The elements sweetly rest
Earth’s sun in the calm lake is mirrored
And heaven’s within my breast
Linger, o blessed Redeemer
Leave me alone no more
And with joy I shall make the blest harbor
And rest on the blissful shore
The winds and the waves shall obey my will, peace be still
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea
Or demons or men or whatever it be
No water can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean and earth and skies
They shall sweetly obey my will
Peace be still, peace be still
They all shall sweetly obey my will, peace, peace be still
