Spring is just around the corner, and it’s inevitable; storms will come. Just like in nature, life will at times be calm, and at other times it will seem as if the full might of mother nature is crashing down on us. While it’s unlikely that you are looking forward to the next storm in your life, they do serve a purpose, and how we choose to react to them matters. Just like the decaying trees or the junk lying around outside, storms remove what is dead and unwanted. It also shows us who we really are, which is seen based on our reactions. No matter what we choose, we have to remember that Jesus is always there in the boat. We can either be afraid, or we can stand firm knowing that he is with us in the middle of every storm.
