“Be Still My Soul”

stormy ocean with splashing waves in cloudy day

Be still, my soul — the LORD is on your side!

Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

Leave to you God to order and provide.

In every change God faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul–Your best, your heavenly Friend

Through thorny ways, leads to a joyful end.

Be still my soul! Your God will undertake,

To guide the future as in ages past.

Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake;

All now mysterious will be bright at last.

Be still my soul!

The waves and winds still know,

The Christ who ruled them while He dwelt below.

“Be still my soul…”

Hymn by- Katharina von Schlegel and Jean Sibelius

“Be still and know that I am God”

– Psalms 46:10 KJV, Psalms 46:11 TLV

“To Everything A Season”

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”

A time to be born, and a time to die;  a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal;  a time to break down, and A time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and A time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and A time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

-Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 TLV
