In The Middle of The Storm

Hurricane Ian is ravaging across the east coast, leaving no mercy and, for some, no hope. And yet, even in the dark I have a hope. My God is in control and He will get me through.


So many people have been and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as Ian continues, and even for what he has done. But today, I want to offer a tiny sliver of hope. A portion to hold onto and cling to in the bleak days ahead, as sadness clings and hopelessness sinks into our flesh.


He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.

Psalms 107:29 NIV


You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat. For the breath of the ruthless is like a storm driving against a wall

Isaiah 25:4 NIV


The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.

Luke 8:24 NIV



These verses, each in their own way, offer us hope. Offer us a peace as the winds howl and thunder blows against our ears. He is here and He is holding us. We need not worry. Repeat that, because I know I struggle with it, we need not worry. God is holding us. He is here and knows our tomorrows, our months to come, and our years to live.
