Blessings of The Stillness Only God Can Bring

Some went off to sea in ships,

plying the trade routes of the world.

They, too, observed the LORD’s power in action,

his impressive works on the deepest seas.

He spoke, and the winds rose,

stirring up the waves.

Their ships were tossed to the heavens

and plunged again to the depths;

the sailors cringed in terror.

They reeled and staggered like drunkards

and were at their wits’ end.

“LORD, help!” they cried in their trouble,

and he saved them from their distress.

He calmed the storm to a whisper

and stilled the waves.

What a blessing was that stillness

as he brought them safely into harbor!

Psalm 107:23-30

(Vik, Iceland)
