A favorite hymn comes to mind as I have my morning prayer time: "How can I keep from singing?" (By Eva Cassidy).
Part of the lyric is "no storm can shake my inmost calm while to that rock I'm clinging. Since Love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing!"
Indeed my friends, no matter what happens for us personally, or as a congregation, nothing can shake our inmost calm! Jesus is the Lord of heaven and earth, and we are loved!! Amen!
