The story that inspired this image…
The events of our lives seldom work out the way we plan. The trouble that “comes in threes” can also come in fours, ﬁves and sixes. We learn to cope with the day-to-day troubles, but what happens when we ﬁnd ourselves in a raging storm and feel we are sinking; when our child dies, our wife leaves or our job gets terminated and we have no savings to fall back on? How do we “self-service” our needs at times like these?
Jesus promised His disciples, “Peace, not as the world gives you, but My peace I give to you.” Jesus offers us a supernatural calm, a genuine peace, in the very wildest circumstances of our lives; a peace the world cannot give and one we cannot provide for ourselves.
The next time you find yourself in stormy seas, turn to Him for this supernatural gift. He will carry you through.
