ABOVE THE STORMS


When dark clouds start to gather,
Don’t cower in fear! Don’t hide!
Dread not the stormy weather,
For the Lord is by your side.

Learn from the mighty eagles.
They fly to the highest peaks,
And there they stand, so regal.
As the stronger wind, they seek.

Still as the storm is brewing,
Eagles set their wings, and wait.
No fear in what they’re doing,
Though the storm does not abate.

The dark clouds they do notice.
Stormy winds begin to roar.
Mere escape, not their motive.
From their lofty perch, they soar.

The updraft lifts them higher.
All below, the storm enshrouds.
But sunshine they’ll admire,
Above the threatening clouds.

So when your life storms gather,
Look to God and make the choice.
Learn from each one you weather,
As you heed His gentle voice.

Each storm will lift you higher,
If in faith, on Him, you lean.
When its His Will you desire,
Strength and wisdom, you will glean.

Fear not, the storms that gather.
Be still! Listen for His voice.
Then in the midst of chaos,
You’ll find reasons to rejoice.

Every storm, you can soar above,
With blessings, each cloud He’ll line.
In faith, trust His Word and His love.
With hope see glorious SON-shine.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

Dear Ellen Hammond,

A very nice poem. We need to trust Jesus and have faith in Him... the going will be rough but He will help us through to the end.

Please, keep writing! I want to read more of your lovely poems.

This is...beautiful. I love this scripture it is so wonderful. Your poem is very inspirational. If only I had heard it when I was going through one of the worst storms in my life. I must admit, I didn't lean on Him, I lost Him for a while. I managed to find my way back and it was because of people who had the faith that I would. I imagine that you are one of those people. One who gives hope to those who need it. One who holds out a hand to those who have fallen down. Your writing is spectacular...
