Storm Calming

I have heard it said that Jesus can calm storms or calm us in order to go through life's trials.  It really helps to be reminded when you are going through the hard times who to keep focused on. 

Our God is not only greater, but He is the absolute greatest. Even in the midst of trouble, instead of praising your problem and magnifying it, give praise to your God, magnify Him, and watch Him stand up and step in on your behalf.  

Like the old hymn reminds us:

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus, 
Look full in His wonderful face, 
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, 
In the light of His glory and grace.
Thank you Jesus for never taking your eyes off of us, and walking with us through the storms of this life.
