Storms

May 22, 2012

“Early Morning After a Storm at Sea” by Winslow Homer, Source/Photographer Wmpearl (Licensed-PD-Art)

Fishing is a hard and dangerous way to make a living. Storms can come up quickly. Ice can form on rigging, and winds blow a man overboard.

Strange that the Lord would have called us to be “fishers of men” (Matt. 4: 19).  Why subject us to such hardship and toil? For the sake of an invaluable “catch” with the process, all the while, conforming us to His image.

Again and again, we face storms. Sometimes these teach us new lessons; other times, they test our mettle to assure that old lessons are firmly in place. We re-learn over and over to lean on the Lord.

He divided the sea and caused them to pass through…” (Ps. 78: 13).

Lord God, Your power is beyond imagining. You govern the storms in our lives, but are greater than they by far.

Increase our awareness of Your presence, as we ride out those storms. Strengthen our hearts that we may endure them.

In Your mercy, make a way for us where there was none.

Amen
