FROM STORM TO STORY // JUNE 11, 2021
And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."
The first time the disciples experienced Jesus calming the storm they wondered who he was. This time they recognized his true identity ... and worshiped!
Jesus knew the storm was coming yet he sent his disciples into it anyway! Why would he do that?!! In fact, there are times he leads us right into a storm and we are left asking WHY?!! Jesus, why didn't you stop the virus? Why didn't you save my job? Why didn't you heal this disease? The truth is we become stronger because of the storms we survive! We become wiser because of the one who saves us! When Jesus sends us he plans to save, strengthen and sustain us.
We have been through some storms this last year! The pandemic has had ripple effects into so many areas of our lives. But these were not just little ripples--these were tidal waves! But you have survived--you are coming out on the other side! The storm you survived becomes the story you tell! What is your story? How have you become wiser? How have you become stronger? We would love to hear your story! What ridiculous things has Jesus done in your life despite the pandemic and quarantine?
