Two Men in a Storm

I posted this poem last year but in light of the daily death tolls drubbing on our minds; I thought that maybe this little verse will help as you face yours.

Two Men in Two Storms

Two men went down to the sea one day

Paul in chains and Jonah running away

“I need to lie down” was all Jonah could say

So he slept through the storm

When he should have prayed


But prisoner Paul cried to God in his boat

Till an angel came down with a message of hope

Then with joy he encouraged his friends

Saying Jesus would keep them all safe in the end


It took a big fish to get Jonah to go

Tell others of mercy and God’s love for the world

But our friend Saint Paul shows us the right way

That when God sends the storm we must trust and obey!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
