Coping with the Storms of Life

My friends, as we mature in Christ, the storms of life are inevitable.  We are either currently in one, ready to get out of one or about to embrace one.  Just like you, I have had my fair share of life’s storms and as we all know, going through the process isn’t pleasant at all.  However, when we make it through to the other side, there is relief.

We are reminded in the word of God in Psalm 23:4 of the assurance we have as we all embrace our storms of life that “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me”.

I am not sure what storm you are currently facing right now but whatever it may be (health, marriage, children, career, relationship, loss, business, finances, depression) one thing we can count on is:

  • God is with us– I know it does not always feel like that when we are in it and that is why we must work with our mind and remind ourselves of this truth. 
  • God will comfort us – Knowing that God is with us in our storm, puts us in a good place to receive His comfort however He chooses to provide it – be it directly from Him, or through human angels.

Christ follower, remember, the battle of life is fought in the mind – so work with your mind during the season of your storm and remember it is temporary. If you are currently not a Christ follower, it is impossible to make it through the storms of life without Jesus – so come.

All glory to God!
