45. The Eye of the Storm

This is a poem that came out of the book Streams in the Desert by L. B. Cowman that was first published in 1925. I would highly recommend your looking into purchasing this book – in the updated edition, edited by James Reimann.  The readings in Streams in the Desert are filled with encouragement for those who are in trials, afflictions, and turbulence. It has been a friend to me since 1999, and I drew on it extensively when I was going through the trials of depression.  Hit “continue reading” for the poem.

The storm is your shelter from danger and sin,

And God Himself takes you for safety within;

The tempest with Him passes into deep calm,

And the roar of the winds is the sound of a psalm

Be glad and serene when the tempest clouds form;

God smiles on His child in the eye of the storm.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
