It’s very early on Saturday morning here at the beautiful Jersey Shore and people have already devastated the water and canned goods supply in the local grocery stores and Wal Mart … they are afraid, listening to the conflicting, yet consistent reports of predicted doom! I say conflicting because it is causing conflict four days before Sandy is even predicted to reach our shores!
I sit here tapping away on my keyboard calm and content even as the Weather Channel guides us in how to be prepared.
Why? Because I am focused on the Perfect God … not the perfect storm. I praise Him in all storms, even those sent by mother nature. 🙂 I wish everyone was … but we are human, and though I am content and calm, I am a good steward. We are prepared … we didn’t empty the stores, we have food and are prepared to cook it all if necessary. But I don’t see that happening! =)
I am determined to stay content in what Jesus said in [to] the storms we encounter …
I will speak to this storm “Quiet, Sandy, Be still … ” Then Sandy will die down and be completely calm. – In Jesus Name, amen.
“But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. But He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!” Luke 8:23, 25
“A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him. fearing the storm … Jesus got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves,
“Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
Jesus said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” -Mark 4:35-40
