storms in the mix

BEND
was the word I heard 
as 2015 dawned
I should perhaps 
have received it
as a warning
for the year would bring
fierce emotional storms
that tossed me about
tested and strained me
till I was certain
I would snap

but the God who creates the storms
also calms them
and there is always
a new season waiting
on the other side of the clouds

We've been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; 
we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do;
 we've been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn't left our side; 
we've been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. 

my word for 2016
has not yet been revealed
when I know
I'll share
