“Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn’t mean He will

Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child” (Scott Krippayne)

In case you’ve had yourself a week and needed the reminder that Jesus can still speak peace to the winds and waves of a storm. He can also speak peace to His child in the midst of the fury of that same storm. The voice that calms the storm is often a whisper that we can’t hear if we’re too busy yelling or frantically thrashing about for a way out. We have to learn how to be still and silent in the storm to hear the whisper.
