I will be still

När havet blåser upp
När åskan går
Så är jag trygg hos dig,
Ditt ord består
Du som stillar stormen
Kom med frid.
Du är min Gud för evig tid.

Gabriella Lindvall has been a Mission Builder with YWAM Seamill for the last 6 weeks during which we there were plenty of beds to make, rooms to clean and food to prepare. We have been incredibly blessed by her, through her service, love and her sense of humour and joy! As her time draws to a close she has written a reflective blog for us, contemplating what God was doing in her life as she gave her time and service to Him.

My name is Gabriella and I’m from Sweden. When I came to Seamill 6 weeks ago, I believed I was ready to serve the Lord in whatever way I could. What I didn’t realize was that God would be doing a work in me, as well.

Coming to Seamill has helped me realize that even if you think you have put certain things behind you that might not be the case. Being in this place has helped me process through old pains well, and I received so much more. God has helped me let go and has given me a gift of peace and calm.

One of my favourite places in Seamill is the beach. The view is beautiful and it brings me a sense of peace. It’s the place I go to take a walk when I need to think or just to enjoy the view of the Isle of Arran and the water.

This place and the amazing people on the base give a feeling of well being, which reminds me that after a storm there can be sunshine.

It also makes me think of a song called Still. At the top, you can see it in Swedish. It’s a song that I’ve listened to a lot and it’s about how God stills the storm, brings calmness and will always be our God.

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You above the storm
Father you are King over the flood

I will be still, know You are God
