It’s not a matter of if the storms of life will come, but when. Yet in our isolated culture, lots of people are cut off from genuine help when the storm hits. Their helplessness leads to hopelessness, and without hope, they lose their sense of purpose.
But here’s the good news: Christ offers hope! And today’s guest, Grace Fox, shares how to weather life’s storms with hope. Oh, and as a woman who lives on a sailboat, Grace knows a thing or two about weathering life’s storms!
My neighbor, Judy, has a room in her home that features striking photographs of storms. Paris, Milan, Montego Bay…all places where majestic, beautiful storms were captured on film. As she described each photograph to me, I became curious as to why she chose storms as her décor. I asked her why she collected such interesting art. “I love storms,” she said.
“What do you love about storms?” I asked. After all, I thought, “I guess they’re beautiful, but they’re also mammoth, intimidating and sometimes fierce.” I thought it was an unusual thing to have such an interest in. Her answer struck me as profound – “They remind me of the presence of God.”
