The Storm of Life
Psalm 107:23-29 Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the Lord, his wonderful deeds in the deep. For he spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
Have you seen The Titanic? Have you seen The Perfect Storm? Have you seen Gilligan’s Island? If you’ve seen any of these three works you will know the ocean is nothing to be trifled with – it is really big, and it can be really mean. Sometimes it can feel like we are at sea; navigating our way through the storm of life. We are at peril and our courage has melted away; reeling and staggering through our days and nights; at our wits end.
Do what the merchants did; cry out to the Lord in your trouble.
