Psalms 107:29 -- On Calming Our Storms

"He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still."
Psalms 107:29

God can not only do this with actual storms, but with the mental and emotional storms we encounter in life as well.  The principle is the same.  We call out him in our distress, and he brings peace.

It doesn't mean that we won't encounter other storms, of course, or even that we don't have to face this one and learn to ride it out or calm it ourselves eventually... but God offers us peace in the midst of tribulation, and calm from all the storms of life.  A pause, so we can regroup and figure things out. :)

Today, let's be thankful for his calming influence in our lives, and for always being there in our greatest need.
