Be still

I seek you in the thunder
But you are not there
I seek you in the screaming wind
But you are not there
I hear a quite murmur in my heart
I still my mind
And know that you are there
In quietness and rest- 
MY peace I leave with you
Not as the world gives- 
My secret is with those who know me.

    In the solace of a soul. It's only God that makes us whole. And when the world knocks at your door. It is God's peace we keep in store.
