Storms

Well, this morning I got to the office just before the latest round of thunderstorms rolled in. I am glad that Sig (Rachel's dog) is in Princeton since he is very afraid of storms! As I write this, I am wondering whether or not I will finish before th power goes out (it often does here).

I reminds me of how many people live their lives. When the storms of life come, they try to hide from them (like Sig) or they let the "power" go out in their lives. Storms come to every life and how we handle them says as much about how we look at God as they do about us. If we are afraid of the storms of life we are very much like the disciples as they were rowing their boat across the Sea of Galilee. They were afraid because they felt that Jesus didn't care (after all he was sleeping!) If you remember the story, the disciples woke Jesus in their fear. His response? "Where is your faith?"

So, I ask you the same question today. In the storms of life, "Where is your faith?" Jesus is able to calm the storm if you simply trust Him. Are you willing?

Don't worry, the storms got to us too! I woke up to find the power out and the dog terrified.
