Where Is Your Hope?

stormy sea

The sea was beating against the rocks in huge, dashing waves. The lightning was flashing, the thunder was roaring, the wind was blowing; but the little bird was asleep in the crevice of the rock, its head serenely under its wing, sound asleep. That is peace—to be able to sleep in the storm! In Christ, we are relaxed and at peace in the midst of the confusion, bewilderments, and perplexities of life. The storm rages, but our hearts are at rest. We have found peace—at last!

You can have peace, even in life’s storms.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, dear Lord, for the hope I have in Your abiding love, which surrounds me.

  3. Edward says:

    A close walk with God through Jesus Christ that finds a person: Asking God’s advice in decisions we have to make, asking him for forgiveness of our sins or just generally talking to him during our daily activities makes God happy and gives us peace in our soul.

    I love the word picture of the bird sleeping in the midst of the storm, that Billy uses. There are many storms in life and how comforting it is to know that God surrounds us with his calming love every single time . His awesome presence gives us extraordinary peace.
