Sometimes He calms the storm… And other times He creates a storm in His child

Scott Krippayne sings a beautiful song, written by…. About life’s storms and how for each storm He can whisper “peace, be still… But it doesn’t mean He will…” “Sometimes He holds us close and let’s the wind and… Roar”. My current storm, I is lame, I’m lame, wait, no actually my leg feels lame. I’ve got a wicked persistent shin splint that has prevented me from enjoying my running schedule…. for two weeks now.

I posted on Facebook the other day that I feel like I’m going crazy, crying spells, yelling, emotional roller coaster type things. I’m a pretty exuberant person normally, but I’m not exactly a roller coaster. I realize and acknowledge that this injury is only for a season, but wow, what a reality check on how much I depend on running for emotional regulation.

All who sail the sea of faith
Find out before too long
How quickly blue skies can grow dark
And gentle winds grow strong
Suddenly fear is like white water
Pounding on the soul
Still we sail on knowing
That our Lord is in control
Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn’t mean He will
Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child
He has a reason for each trial
That we pass through in life
And though we’re shaken
We cannot be pulled apart from Christ
No matter how the driving rain beats down
On those who hold to faith
A heart of trust will always
Be a quiet peaceful place
