Peace in the Storms

Yes, I bring peace into all the storms of life.

You see, I gave my very life for you to live full and richly.

My capacity to love was not limited to my earthly family –

I love everyone in the entire world.

Heaven’s joy is glorious to behold when people come to know and love Me.

Yes, you have been my child now for many years and I treasure our friendship.

I will always hold your hand and be with you

Even though your world appears to crumble, I will still be there –

guiding and bringing you peace.

                                                                                       

Psalms 107:29, 30 (NLT): “He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves. What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor!”

 When we think about storms in the scripture our minds often go to the familiar passage in Luke 8:22-25 when Jesus “rebuked the wind and the raging waves. The storm stopped and all was calm!”  However, as terrifying as it is to be in an actual storm out in a boat with lightning, thunder and huge waves, it is just as threatening to have other types of stresses: physical, emotional or financial. I know I need the scriptures and the gentle whisper of his words to bring peace into all my days, even at this joyous time of Christmas!
