Many of us are presently struggling to navigate our little boats through the horrific storms on the raging sea of life.
-At times,countless waves of despair and defeat ferociously pound against our boats. But,somehow, we continue to sail along.
-At times,currents of brokenness and loneliness drift us downstream like a boat without a paddle (no obvious direction, just going with the flow). There is still some fight within us. We don't lose hope.
-At times,clashes of thunder and downpours of rain filled with unimaginable hardships grip us with fear, even though we know that we are admonished to "fear not". Although, we are afraid and we have no idea what awaits us around the next turn, we press on.
-At times,the prevailing clouds of darkness looming in the atmosphere seem to overshadow the light of God's WORD.
This, too, shall pass. There is a beam of sunshine just behind the dark cloud. How do we know this?
Romans 8:28 assures us,
For we know that all things (this is all encompassing) work
together for the good of those who love God and to those who
are the called according to His purpose.
