Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Whenever I am troubled and lost in deep despair
I bundle all my troubles up and go to God in prayer ...
I tell Him I am heartsick and lost and lonely, too,
That my mind is deeply burdened and I donít know what to do ...
But I know He stilled the tempest and calmed the angry sea
And I humbly ask if in His love Heíll do the same for me ...
And then I just Keep Quiet and think only thoughts of Peace
And if I abide in Stillness my "restless murmurings" cease.
