Hurricanes. Last night I watched as the University of Tulsa’s Golden Hurricane blew away SMU’s Mustangs with a 43 to 40 win in overtime. .
I’ve been tracking Hurricane Matthew as it has been reeking havoc on Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, The Bahamas, and the east coast of the southeastern United States. Leaving behind a path of destruction.
Hurricanes are devastating. They’re intense and chaotic. But in the center we find the eye of the storm. The calm. The peace.
I’ve kind of been on an eye kick this past week.With my eye surgery and all.
Jesus is the eye of our storm. If He can calm the sea, if He can speak the storm into non existence, just imagine what He can do for you and me with a little faith?
Let’s all do whatever we can to help our fellow man in times of natural disasters. At the very least let’s offer up our prayers. In the hurricanes. And the tornadoes. And the floods and the fires.
And for those times when we’re facing the storms in our own lives, whatever they may be, let’s always have faith in Jesus to calm our storm. He’s the eye of the storm. Every storm. And the name of Jesus alone can rebuke whatever storm you’re facing.
My heart and prayers go out to all those affected by Hurricane Matthew. ♡
35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him.37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 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. 40 He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” Mark 4:35-40
