Through the Storm
Most of the time when a storm is coming to our area, we receive warning. Weather alerts go out, breaking news reports inundate our social media pages, and because of that, we can start to prepare.
An unexpected storm however, can catch us off guard. Because we had no idea what was coming, we don’t feel prepared to handle it. The disciples went through something similar.
Without warning a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown.” Matthew 8:24-25
Just like Jesus was in the boat with the disciples the entire time, He is also with you and me when we encounter things we aren’t expecting. Don’t let the unexpected circumstances of life throw you off and shatter your faith. Be confident that Jesus is not only with you, but will see you through any storm.
Have you ever felt like you were alone during an unexpected storm? What helped you to remember that He is with you, always?
