The Breakthrough

by Mark Weinrich

When the churning
atmosphere of my trial
declares all is lost,
and my cargo of hope 
has been cast into the sea. 
One thought, one action 
breaks through the fog. 
I remember who 
is in the boat with me 
and I call out to Him. 

The height of waves
or depth of impossibility
make no difference to Him.
His power of peace
transcends the weight,
the storm’s darkness.
And like a lake
mirrored with mountains,
my heart is calmed.
