January and now February has brought us snow here in NJ. Rob’s 33rd birthday was on the 24th and the day before we had a blizzard that left us with about two feet of snow. We went out in it to play but it was so windy and cold that I kept shivering and wincing (you can see by the look on my face). The boys had so much fun in the snow. It was still too soft for them to build a snowman though. The following day was sunny and beautiful.
Are you going through a personal blizzard in your life? Sometimes I get so upset or hurt that I feel as if everything is going against me. I keep reading this passage to know that there is a calm and that I should not fear but trust that God will guide my way and help me when I go through struggles.
” ‘They set out, and as they sailed he (Jesus) fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger.And they went and woke him, saying, ‘Master, Master, we are perishing!’ And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, ‘Where is your faith?’ – Luke 8:23-25a
