In a Storm

Chippie the parakeet never saw it coming! One second perched peacefully. The next—whoosh—sucked into the vacuum cleaner hose! The bird owner turned off the vacuum, opened the bag. There was Chippie—still alive, but stunned! Chippie doesn’t sing much anymore. Blown over, sucked in, it’s enough to steal the song from the stoutest heart.
Can you relate? Most of us can. One minute you’re seated in familiar territory, a song on your lips, then. . .the rejection letter arrives. The doctor calls. The divorce papers are delivered. You’re sucked into a black cavern of doubts. Left with a long night of fear and a long list of questions. Jesus knows we’re in a storm. Why doesn’t he come?
The same voice that stilled the rage on the Sea of Galilee can still the storm in your world. Be assured—He is closer than you’ve ever dreamed!
Psalm 145:18 says “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”
