Is there deep trouble in your life right now? Are you facing many trials at once? When the storm comes raging, it’s tempting to think all is lost. But wait… and remember.
Go back to the bedrock of your faith. Remember who Jesus is and what he has done for you. Remember who he is — the Son of God — your Savior. Seek shelter in his grace to give you calm and guide your actions.
You won’t find absolute rest in how people treat you or react. A situation won’t give you lasting comfort. Instead, trust in the owner and giver of true peace. After the storm passes, there will be fallen tress and debris, but your faith will remain. It will grow deeper and stronger. Trust in this process.
A message and prayer from Vincent:
Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.
And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
But he who endures to the end will be saved.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.I and the Father are one.”
And he awoke and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
PRAYER FOR CALM IN THE STORM
Oh loving Lord,
The wind and rain come down fast and hard, clouds darken against me. Won’t you help me?
Send me your protection and peace against the chaos. May your grace cover and calm my heart even in the uncertainty.
Send your Spirit to show me that no mater what happens my soul is at rest in the love and mercy of Christ Jesus.
May I wait when I must wait, act when I must act. Let patience and clarity keep my mind focused on your will.
This only happens if I trust you and seek you. So here I am, oh loving Lord, at your feet, under your wing until the storm passes.
In Jesus name,
