“Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We are surrounded by various storms in life.  We may lose a loved one – lose jobs – reach for the stars only to be knocked down over and over again.  You can see a similar thread weaving its way through this patchwork of pain and loss.  When a storm occurs, it can result in complete desperation or the victims rallying together to rebuild.

When we place our troubles in the hands of the One who controls everything, we are truly letting.  That doesn’t mean we simply sit back and wait for Him to fix everything.  He gives us the means with which to mend our physical situation, by providing us with logical minds – physical strength – determination – and even our faith.

When Jesus slept during a raging storm on the Sea of Galilee, His disciples panicked.  They thought all was lost.  We think that way too when trouble comes our way. We often raise our hands in despair and sometimes even curse God for bringing this torment into our lives.  Jesus calmed the sea.  He rebuked the wind and it became quiet.  He proved He was God.

We are much like those men who feared for their lives in that storm.  When faced with difficulties, we panic – we lose hope – our faith wanes – we firmly believe this is the end for us – we give up.  We quickly forget that Jesus is our companion through this life and He will never let us down.  Even in our darkest hours, He is with us.

Thank you, Lord, Jesus, for calming the storms of life – for rebuking the devil and all his wicked ways – for walking beside me – for carrying me through the most difficult times – for dying for me and giving me eternal life. I ask that you give comfort to those who face great loss.  Remind them of your presence in their lives.   I will forever praise your Holy Name.  Amen



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
