Madame Guyon (AD 1648-1717)
If the wind becomes hostile and blows a storm, we must cast anchor to hold the ship steady. Our anchor is a firm confidence and hope in our God. In this we wait patiently for the calming of the tempest and the return of a favorable breeze; just as David waited patiently for the Lord, and he turned to him and heard his cry (Ps 40:1). Therefore, we must surrender to the spirit of God, giving ourselves up wholly to his divine guidance.
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry.
