One Bad Storm

Life’s Storms

During World War II, hundreds of American soldiers were transported to North Africa on battleships. These ships were heavily armed and represented great military strength. However, one ship encountered a storm so fierce that the wind and waves ripped the heavy cannons right out of the steel decks, leaving gaping holes that seemed to suck in the water. Fortunately, the ship, its crew, and military passengers survived. But the ship was virtually defenseless until it could return home all the way across the Atlantic for repairs.

We Christians often make the mistake of thinking we are safe in our own strength, but all it takes is one bad storm to show us how weak we really are.

Isn’t it possible that God allows storms to come our way so we might recognize just how small and weak we really are and how much we need to depend on Him?
