Voice in the Storm
Voice in the storm
Darkness steals across the land
In twisting, rolling contortions
Rumbling thunder conceals inside
The voice of majestic proportions
Wind swirls ahead, whispers to me
Stirring the passions within
My soul answers abandon and free
Awakening the senses
Lightning flashes, igniting heaven
Electricity sizzles the air
Bolts of fire raining down
Powerful as my prayer
The voice in the wind is soft as rain
Pattering on the ground
But don’t be fooled, let wisdom reign
The voice is the voice of God!
Gentle, it’s true, but powerful too
Before it I cannot stand
It speaks to me, I’m not alone
Will I ever understand?
His spoken word, it humbles me
I know not what to say
I bow my head, fall to my knee
I will not doubt again
I have always loved thunderstorms. The demonstration of God’s power is exhilarating. I love the way the air turns green and crackles with electricity as the storm approaches. I love to feel the wind whipping everything into a wild frenzy, picking up everything in its path and making it soar. The thunder and lightning shouting their authority fills me with glee. It was in a storm that God answered Job. Job’s life was falling apart, his world was spinning out of his control. Over and over he asks God what he did wrong, what he needed to do differently to hold it all together. Then God speaks to him in a storm. In a time when God isn’t known to speak to anybody, he shows Job his love by answering him. He demonstrates the depth of his power and shows him that he is still in control. No matter what is happening in our lives, we can trust that God is still in control of the universe.
