Quiet my soul, O God

Apr 11, 2024 by Leoma G Gilley, in INSIDE: Reflections
Quiet my soul, O God.
My world is in chaos and noise--
sounds of war, cries of anguish,
hungry children, grieving widows,
broken men and women.
Quiet my soul, O God.

How can I find quiet in this world?
Division, hatred, revenge,
aggression, suffering, pain.
Is anyone in control of this hopeless mess?
Am I confident in God's sovereignty?

I believe, LORD. Help my unbelief.
Your ways are beyond my understanding.
Your plans are greater than I can know.
Bring me into your quiet sanctuary
and comfort me with the confidence
of your sovereignty over all.
