They saw the works of the Lord, his wonderful deeds in the deep. For he spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;
in their peril their courage melted away…
they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.
He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm,
and he guided them to their desired haven.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.
James 1:1 says to count it pure joy when we go through a trial.Then in James1:2-8 he uses the metaphor of a stormy sea and says we will encounter storms in this life, and without faith we will be "like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind."
Storms are a part of Christian life. I can pray for Him to calm the waves but also must be faithful in the storm. Remember Jesus' words in Mark 4 in the midst of a storm
Peace, Be Still.
