I stand at the beach as brisk cold winds blow seaweed, branches and sea foam about. The water churns and white-capped waves hit the shoreline. I am nearly blown off balance and hold tight to my cap.
At once, I must firmly stand on both feet and am drawn to the assurance that comes from knowing I can stand up against these winds.
I know many who are wavering on unsteady ground, seeking answers and the assurance that they will still be standing when the sun sets and the winds die down.
In unsteady times, when trouble befalls and we cannot seem to figure out which way is up, we must rely on He who is always steady… Jesus.
You’re my true north when I’m headed south
My constant solid ground
You are my lantern in the night
When I’m twisted up and shaken
You’re the one I put my faith in
Yeah, you’re the reason I survive
You keep me steady when the sky is falling
And I’ll keep steady after You
I’ll carry on when my strength is failing
Take heart ’cause you’re with me
So let the stars drop
Whatever comes, I’ll be ready
– Steady by for King and Country
