Security in Insecure Times

On Wednesdays my parents and I (alone, together)  are watching a series of talks by Elisabeth Elliot: "Suffering Is Not for Nothing," on the Ligonier Ministries YouTube channel. The session we watched last week quoted part of an Amy Carmichael poem which spoke reassuring stability into this uncertain and tumultuous year. Perhaps it will encourage someone else too.


When stormy winds against us break, 
   Stablish and reinforce our will; 
O hear us for Thine own name's sake;
   Hold us in strength, and hold us still.

Still as the faithful mountains stand
   Through the long, silent years of stress, 
So would we wait at Thy right hand, 
   In quietness and steadfastness. 

But not of us this strength, O Lord,
   And not of us this constancy; 
Our trust is Thine eternal word, 
   Thy presence our security. 

(Quoted from Mountain Breezes)
