Country musician Randy Travis had a song that went, “The storms of life are washing me away.”
The storms of life can wash us away….if we have nothing to hold onto.
In the gospel of Luke, there is a story about a time when Jesus and His disciples were in a boat. A storm came up and the disciples were afraid. Jesus was asleep so they awakened Him. After doing so, Jesus rebuked the winds and the raging storm died.
The disciples were stunned! They said, “Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?””
We are all either about to go into a storm, coming out of a storm or going into one. If you are currently in a storm, Jesus wants to help us. The storm may not die down…The waves may continue to rage, but Jesus will help us navigate the storms of life.
