I have observed numerous individuals who are facing economic turmoil, medical challenges, and workplace related challenges. In my newsletter I refer to a young woman who lost her job, had four young children, and had to weather the storm of not knowing “how”, “where”, or “when”, relief would return to her Life.
Last evening, I heard a Pastor talk about the Apostle Paul’s sea voyage to Rome through a treacherous storm that lasted weeks. While all aboard the ship were terrified and starving, Paul was unmoved and unwavering in his outlook because of his faith in Jesus.
While we come from a diverse collection of beliefs, religions, and cultures, there is something here that is worthwhile noting for those in tumultuous times of their lives. You need to be anchored in something or someone that you can believe in to see you through the otherwise unsafe passage - something or someone that inspires you and gives you the solutions that you need when faced with times of trouble – something or someone that is Unfailing.
Storms don’t last for always. The morning does come, but how you weather your season of turmoil and what shape you will be in when it is over has a great deal to do with your relationship to that with which you hold your belief.
