Storms, trials, dark tunnels, waiting, sorrow, and finding strength!
Seeking rest and renewal.
Sometimes the circumstances we face in life hit us like a hurricane. No matter what precautions we take, a point in time comes when we have to sit tight and ride out the storm.
Some days I find myself with the faith to get out of the boat and walk on the water out to Jesus, as Peter did. Other days . . . not so much!
A poem about storms, trials, dark tunnels, waiting, sorrow, and being strengthened.
Sometimes we go through seasons of long or subsequent storms in our life-journeys. In those times we should find places to rest and people to trust. I find it helpful to remember God’s faithfulness during previous storms to get through current or coming storms. . . .
“Huddled in the hallway in my sister-in-law’s home, we listened to the news reporting the approaching hurricane until the power went out . . .. The heaviest part of the storm hit after dark. Most of us could not sleep as thunder boomed and wind and rain beat against the house.”
