THE STORMS OF LIFE ~ July 10, 2011

     Oy Vey….Now That’s Faith!  

“Faith is the confidence, the assurance, the enforcing truth, the knowing….” ~ Rober Collier

“Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.” ~ Orison Swett Marden

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it…You must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

SPIRITUAL SATURDAY ~ Stormy Seas ~ May 21, 2011 by Charles Betts


A storm arose on Galilee

James and John were there with me

Jesus slept and did not see

The terror that came over me


A sailor, I’d seen storms before

Wind and waves had often roared

I’d helped others get to shore

This storm seemed so much more


The three of us began to think

This time we will surely sink

Jesus slept and did not blink

Our fears took us to the brink


Disciples, we wondered if we dare

Awake the Lord, our peril share

We even wondered if He cared

Nerves were raw, our souls were bared


The storm got worse, no longer brave

Humbled, we asked the Lord to save

Us all from the dark watery grave

He rebuked the wind and wave


Now I sail on in calm and peace

He caused the storm in life to cease

In troubled times I just release

It all to Him, The prince of peace


If you’re out on the sea today

Afraid that you’ll be swept away

Call on Him. Take time to pray

He still keeps the storms at bay


A Poem By Charles Betts, May 27th, 2006

Charles, it is wonderful to be reminded that Jesus is always there for us, especially during the storms of life. Oftentimes, we can only recognize His presence after the storm when we can more clearly see. Thank you for pointing out that we are never alone. Jesus answers all our prayers.

SPIRITUAL SATURDAY ~ The Refuge ~ January 22, 2011 by Charles Betts







When you’ve lost all that mattered
Every dream’s been shattered
There’s no friend left to call your own

Each day is one big tempest
Nights are sleepless unrest
You wonder if you’ll always be alone

I have found a place of refuge
Where I escape the deluge
When the storms of life are battering my soul

It is there in quiet solitude
That I regain my fortitude
Once again I am made well and whole

Here my heart begins to sing
I am lifted up on Eagle’s wings
I am at rest and again my spirit soars

His name is a strong tower
He is my source of power
Every day’s a day worth living for

The name of the Lord
Will be your reward
He’ll give you strength to face life every day

He’ll cause the storms to cease
He’ll give you inner peace
But it’s up to you to take the time to pray

THE STORM — November 21, 2010 by Cassidy Webb

There is no thunder, no lightening, nothing quite that frightening,

and yet I know the storm is coming.

There is no rain and no lit up skies, no children with their innocent cries

and still I know the storm is coming.

Clouds grow darker and still I see the sun.

The storm I speak of won’t be found outside.

It comes to the place where we all hide.

It fills us with light,

dark sound deafening our ears and flooding the ground.

It swirls around us.

We must decide to fight that current or float away and die.

Is it raining in your world? Are your skies black with pain?

Will you fight against that current or float away in the rain?
