Over the last few days, I have been thinking a lot about storms. Storms are scary and cause us to become afraid. I know when I go through storms in life fear rises, and I am afraid.
Ever since the hurricane hit Texas, I have watched a couple of videos of people worshiping and praising God through that storm. I have watched Texans come together and help each other. I have seen people from other states come and help other’s out. The Cajun Navy from Louisiana come with their boats and rescue people from their homes. Since I am a visual learner seeing this that has actually shown me that when I am going through my storms I can worship God in the middle of the storm and I know there are people that will be there to help me through the storm, but most importantly is to remember that God is right in the middle of the storm, and while worshiping him and giving thanks in the midst of the storm I must reach out for his help in the midst of the storm. He is truly the one that can help us in our storms of life.
While I have been thinking about storms and all the troubles that are going on in the world today, I think of a song that I heard many years ago by Lanny Wolfe titled,
Peace in Jesus in a troubled world today.
Their little boat was tossed about upon the stormy seas The disciples woke the Master crying “Lord, save us please!” Then Jesus spoke with authority and commanded: “Peace be still!” And instantly every wind and wave obeyed the Master’s will
There is peace in Jesus in a troubled world today There is peace in Jesus, and the world can’t take it away Though there’s trouble all around I’m so glad I have found
There is peace in Jesus in a troubled world today
So many times I’m tossed about upon life’s stormy seas, And though the winds of trouble blow, my Savior pilots me For I know Peace be Still guides my little boat, I’ll not fear the wind or wave, For he who’s kept me safe thus far will keep me all the way
My prayer is that no matter what we go through instead of fear taking control of our lives, we pray to find the Peace of Jesus after all he controls the winds and the waves in Life. So to make the best of the storm is to allow God to control the storm.
