#Blessing: Good morning again! Sunrise on the 1st day of November, 2020

11/1/20: It’s the first day of November, 2020 already, and the 8th month entering the shelter-in-place order! What a strange year we are having! Global pandemic, political divisions, separations among ourselves, sicknesses and death around us… Things just kept crashing over at us like waves in the storm.

Daylight saving ended today, and with that extra hour to spare, I decided to call up my bestie to check out sunrise again at a spot that is near home this time. The anticipation of sunrise again brought us peace and hope. The view is again glorious and stunning! Looking at the reflection of the sunrise over a bed of calm water reminds me of Who is in control in the eye of the storm.

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever.

Psalm 29:10

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 14:27

Dear Lord, thank you for your peace that calms my heart and strengthens my soul in times of trouble! You reign over the storm!

Sharing this song – In the eye of storm by Ryan Stevenson

“Eye Of The Storm”
(feat. GabeReal)
by Ryan Stevenson

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
And in the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm
When the solid ground is falling out from underneath my feet
Between the black skies, and my red eyes, I can barely see
When I realize I’ve been sold out by my friends and my family
I can feel the rain reminding me

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm
Mmm, when my hopes and dreams are far from me, and I’m runnin’ out of faith
I see the future I picture slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus’ name

In the eye of the storm (yeah, yeah)
You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me (Your love surrounds me)
In the eye of the storm (in the eye of the storm)

When the test comes in and the doctor says I’ve only got a few months left
It’s like a bitter pill I’m swallowing; I can barely take a breath
And when addiction steals my baby girl, and there’s nothing I can do
My only hope is to trust You
I trust You, Lord

In the eye of the storm (yeah, yeah) You remain in control
In the middle of the war (middle of the war), You guard my soul (yeah!)
You alone are the anchor (ooh), when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me (yeah!)

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
In the middle of the war (in the middle of the war), You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor (ooh), when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm, oooh
Oh, in the eye of, oh, in the eye of the storm

I know You’re watching me, yea, ay
When the storm is raging (when the storm is raging)
And my hope is gone (and my hope is gone, Lord)
When my flesh is failing, You’re still holding on, oh whoa
When the storm is raging (the storm is raging)
And my hope is gone (and all my hope is gone)
When my flesh is failing (my flesh is failing)
You’re still holding on, oooh
When the storm is raging (when the storm is raging)
And my hope is gone (and my hope is gone)
Even when my flesh is failing (flesh is failing)
You’re still holding on, holding on
The Lord is my Shepherd
I have all that I need
He lets me rest in green meadows
He leads me beside peaceful streams
He renews my strength
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His Name
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid
For You are close beside me

  1. Even though we are watching the same sky and same sunrise, God using different colors and designs reminding us every moring is a new beginning, everyday is a fresh start and each day is a new life.
