“Don’t tell God how Big your storm is, tell the Storm how Big your God is”
I like that one….I found it in a book of positive quotations but it was attributed to “unknown”. Indeed, God is bigger than any of our storms. Love overcomes all. That is not to say that God, or love, or those who love us will ensure that we always have our way. I think that we can each imagine being in that boat on the stormy lake and filled with fear. We, too, would scream for Jesus to save us. In today’s vernacular, perhaps Jesus would look at us tenderly and yet with some exasperation. Perhaps He would hold up His hands to stop the storms and say to us “Dudes!It’s all good!”
I like to think of Him speaking us in today’s language sometimes. St Paul tells us that “nothing is impossible for God”. So holding onto our faith during the storms will help us stay tuned in to the channel He wants open all the time. That channel is God station “G”R”A”C”E”. May His gentle reminders keep our ears listening to Him. Be brave, have courage under stress: He is our emergency broadcast system; our storm shelter; our boat and our helicopter; He is our everything. He was, is, and ever shall be, bigger than our storms in life.
