I Will Praise You in The Storm

Acts 27:20
The terrible storm raged for many days, blotting out the sun and the stars, until at last all hope was gone.
How would you like to find yourself thrown into this turbulent sea with no life vest. How long would you survive? Each week I talk to people who feel like that has happened to them. Storms come in all shapes and sizes. Job loss, sickness, divorce, family problems, debt overload, addictions, depression, ageing. The people going through these storms may not look like it on the outside but on the inside they look like this picture. What can we do? Well, we can point them towards the one who has the power to calm the storm...Jesus Christ. When Simon Peter was walking on the water he was fine as long as he focused on Christ but when he turned his focus to the waves and wind he began to sink. Our job as Christians is to help people refocus. Help them not to look at the problem but rather problem solver. It's a choice just like everything in life. Choose Christ.
