Master the Tempest is Raging
Last Sunday, my roommates and I went to a musical meeting where a pianist and violinist played a beautiful arrangement of one of my favorite hymns, Master the Tempest is Raging. This hymn is one my favorites because it really seems to describe my life sometimes. The words describe being tossed around by life. Around now with all the midterms and projects, I sometimes really feel that I am completely on for the ride and completely out of control of my life. But as the scriptures remind us, Christ is Lord over all the things in this world and he can bring peace. I have faith that if he can bring peace to the elements and calm the waves. He can calm the waves in my life and calm my troubled soul. This brings me great comfort to know that if I don't feel in control, there is still one who I can count on to help pilot me through the turbulent storms of life. Here is a website with the words and tune of this awesome hymn http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/m/a/mastertt.htm.
