Years ago I heard J. Vernon McGee say "He never promised that we would miss the storm, but He did promise that we would make the harbor." That encourages me and gives me hope.
Another lesson I learned, during my storm, is called The Secret. I don't know who wrote this poem but I know that the message is true. I hope you experience the comfort of His Presence before a storm hits. You may not miss the storm but it sure makes the sailing smoother in the middle of it.
