Music that Ministers

There are only a few musicians that have gone the journey with me from youth until now. Paul Overstreet is one of them. The kind southern country feel of his music has made me smile, rejoice in my role here at home, and encouraged my walk with God. There is one song in particular that has ministered to my heart for as long as I have heard it. That song is below. It comes from his Heroes album and I just thought you might enjoy the words.


 


Calm at the Center of my Storm
by Paul Overstreet



Sometimes I let this old world have it's way with me
And there is no escape as far as I can see
Captured by the wind I break so helplessly
I know if not for you
There'd be no hope for me


 


You are the calm... at the center of my storm
When the cold winds blow
You're the fire that keeps me warm
When this old world gets me down
I will rest inside your arms
You are the calm... at the center of my storm


 


If I could only learn to always turn to you
Instead of thinking I always know what to do
But only takes the darkness for my eyes to see
There's never been a time when you weren't there for me


 


You are the calm... at the center of my storm
When the cold winds blow
You're the fire that keeps me warm
When this old world gets me down
I will rest inside youre arms
You are the calm... at the center of my storm


 


When this old world gets me down
I will rest inside youre arms
You are the calm... at the center of my storm
You are the calm... at the center of my storm
