Still, My Soul Be Still

A couple of years ago, at a very difficult time in my life, a good friend who knew exactly my struggle, reminded me of this song. 

Things are changing all the time. Somtimes, the changes are good, but that doesn't mean they are easy. Change reminds us that we are not in control. This song has been on my mind recently, so I thought I would share it.

Still, my soul be still,
And do not fear 
Though winds of change may rage tomorrow.
God is at your side;
No longer dread 
The fires of unexpected sorrow 

God, You are my God;
And I will trust in You and not be shaken.
Lord of peace renew 
A steadfast spirit within me,
To rest in You alone.

Still, my soul be still. 
Do not be moved 
By lesser lights and fleeting shadows.
Hold onto His ways,
With shield of faith 
Against temptations flaming arrows.

Still, my soul be still.
Do not forsake 
The Truth you learned in the beginning.
Wait upon the Lord,
And hope will rise
As stars appear when day is dimming
