Waiting for the Storm – Birdee

Waiting for the Storm

This is a poem I wrote (which I found yesterday) in February 1988

When I was in 9th grade. Stay tethered to Jesus Christ!

Waiting for the Storm

Stop now and listen

Be wise, I tell you

Change your evil ways

You have brewed a wicked storm

Raging like a hurricane

Thriving on hatred, cruelty, lies, and wars

It has the power to end the world…

And kill every last living soul on it

For as it approached

You feel the bitter lashing winds

Freezing your once warm heart

And twisting your once sane minds

Till you become emotionless

Hypnotized in vacant stares

Too afraid to reach out and help

But wait I tell you! It’s not too late!

It only takes one to make a difference

Only one to turn the tides!

Yet to you, one isn’t enough,

So there you stand…

Waiting for the storm…


And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so muchbthat they were afraid to die. Rev. 12:11

And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering.

Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.

A Prayer of Praise

Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.

All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.

Jude 1:22-25
