Quiet The Thundering Heart


Some have said "God doesn't call the qualified
He qualifies the called"

for those times You call and we quiver
commence to shake and shiver

the heart begins to pound
so loudly we can't hear another sound

please quiet the thundering heart
we really want to do our part

help us when we get weak in the knees
Lord, give us strength, if You please

when we raise our voices in song
help us sing out clear and strong

for each time we feel it start
please quiet the thundering heart

Isaiah 58:9
then you will call and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and He will say "Here am I"

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
