Introduction: Storms come in many varieties.
Proposition: In Matt 14:22-33 we discover some facts concerning the storms of life as they relate to God.
This is the song used for the offertory this Sunday. I figured I'd post the demo in case anyone would like it. The vocals in the verses are a bit quiet, so, I'll include the lyrics below too. If anyone wants a better mixed version email me and I'll send it to you. :)
Lord, I'm still free to speak your
name, and I'm well fed
I may not know the future
Yet I know it's in your hands
But the storm bearing down on me
Is still very real
I don't have the answers
But from you someday I will...
I cry out in your name - You are HOLY!
In my life may you reign - You are HOLY!
You deserve all my praise - You are HOLY!
Father hear Your people
Some with broken hearts
Hear our new repentance
For our latest scars
We can make a mess of things
Trusting in ourselves
Help us to glorify You
Before You calm the swells
We cry out in your name - You are HOLY!
In our lives may you reign - You are HOLY!
You deserve all our praise - You are HOLY!
Whether we step out and dance across the waves
Or we're under water - fill our lungs with praise
You're the only way that we draw breath today
Have your way in us - through our joy and pain
