“Trust in the Lord with all your heart “

It was an afternoon in the mid summer time
The bright beautiful sky turned gray
The lightning showed like yellow lines
It was so frightening from far away

My friend, my mom, and I were in a car
Crossing a bridge , the destination was quite far
Suddenly the water from the sky poured
heavily
The wiper was broken, it was so hard
to see

My friend was the one driving, I was right
next to her
Behind my seat was my mom started singing
I’m glad she was there
The  road was blurry,
The rain was heavy

I took an umbrella , then sat to
the driver’s left side
I tried my best to wipe the window
with quick sweeping glide
It was a dreamy event, a threatening one
Yet my mom kept singing, worriness
in her face was none

My mom then said , don’t be afraid ,sing with me
We sang ” The Lord’s Prayer” repeatedly
The ominous clouds got brightened
I looked at the sky and said “Lord, Amen”

That day I learned my faith was weak 
Thinking It could have been our last day
And the  long bridge was steep,
The car could be washed away

When we got home, my mom then said
“When things is out of control, don’t act in haste”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart my dear”
“Live your life with Him without any fear “

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart”
