After hearing the weather forecast ….. we decided to go for a drive to the coast on Monday before the storm hit. The sea was perfectly calm ….. but the sky confirmed what was predicted. In the storms of life ….. we don’t always get a warning. They can come suddenly out of nowhere. How do we prepare for such events? By looking up! Sometimes ….. the Holy Spirit prompts us to do something we may not understand at the time. It may be a feeling or a word we hear in our innermost being. But even if the storm hits us unknowingly ….. we can be sure that the One who is in control can calm the storm or take us safely through it. Jesus said “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. The sun is still shining above those storm clouds!
