God is Calming To Me

You calm the roaring seas; calm the roaring waves, calm the noise of the nations.

You silence the roar of the seas, the roar of their waves, and the tumult of the nations.

You who still the noise of the seas, The noise of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples.

-Psalm 65:7 (CEB, HCSB, NKJV)


God is calming.  God silences the roar.  God stills the noise.

God is so magnificent that he is the commending presence in any situation, no matter how big or how loud.  God's trustworthiness is so immense that it overcomes every obstacle.  God is so glorious that praise for him wells up and must be given always, in every situation.

If you have been to the ocean, at the beach for instance, you have had the opportunity to hear the noise of the crashing  waves.  When the tides come up onto the sand, they make a roaring noise.  You have to yell to be heard over it.

Whatever you are going through in your life, that makes a noise in your heart or mind, that might be obtrusive, annoying, or disheartening; God can still and quiet it.  God can silence it and bring calm.

All my worries, all my challenges, all my disappointments, and even if I have racing thoughts; God brings me into calmness, stillness, and silence.
