Peace Be Still

A storm is brewing within me.  
Darkness so impenetrable;  
I can't see.  
A tsunami of tears  
Battering against my chest;  
Engulfing my heart in pain.  
I call to the Lord for rescue  
Again and again.  

Thunderous voices echo loudly;  
Smoldering my pleas.  
I fall to my knees.  
The harsh winds  
Rocking me to and fro.  
I don't know  
How I got here.  
I pray my cries  
The Lord will hear.  

In the midst
Of the deafening whirlwind;  
A radiant light
Begins to transcend  
Through the darkness;  
Parting the clouds  
Like the Red Sea.  
 
I hear God's voice  
Whispering to me,  
"Peace be still."  
A tranquil feeling  
Courses through my body.  
A beautiful silence surrounds me;  
Setting me free.  
Transforming my mind anew.  
"Dear God,  
I thank You."
