The Tempest

Proverbs 10:25 is the inspiration for today’s meditation.

It may be that you didn’t get much sleep last night. Why? You’re living in the midst of a tempest. It’s possible that a terrible storm is on the horizon of your life, and you don’t even know it. Or, perhaps you’re a seasoned veteran of the strong winds and frightening waves of life, and you’ve lived to tell about it.

Whomever you are, take a moment to commit the wise statement above to memory. Do your best to reflect on it throughout the day. Above all, remember that God has not promised a tempest-free existence. What He has promised is that if you welcome Him into the boat of your life, the tempest will eventually pass, and peace in Him will reign.
