The Confession

In the stillness of the night You hear my cry

You know the battle in my soul

I give the fight all I have and try

To bear the rigorous toll


You embrace me in my weakest moment

You remind me of Your great love

In my daily predicament

I know I have help from up above


In my heart You calm the raging sea

Your commanding voice says, “Peace, be still”

The fears and anxieties immediately flee

With rest and peace my heart does fill


I don’t know if healing will come this side of glory

I don’t know how hard the journey will be

But I know You write my story

Every page becomes a testimony


Shine Your light through my brokenness

Let all see Your grace and truth

Let them see You haven’t forsaken me

The great good You’re doing is the proof


For You turn my sorrow into blessing

You turn my weakness into power

Your grace I will keep confessing

You are my safe and strong tower


Every day I will confess Your goodness

Every night I will remember Your love

Show me Your forever faithfulness

I will show You my forever love

    I could really identify with, "In my heart you calm the raging sea." So often lately I've had to tell myself that God is in control and He has control of my situation. Thank you for sharing this post today.

    Thank you for telling me the part you really identified with, Gail. It's comforting to remember that God is in control of all things. He is a good Father, and He will take care of us. Thanks for commenting!
