When you pass through the stormy seas, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
Storms threaten us in life, but they always give way to calm. Stormy seas definitely threaten smooth sailing for us, but our boats most always survive and we sail again with calmer winds in our sails. For so many people, illness has brought life storms. Often the storm rages for a long time and causes great fear. But sometimes we are able to make it through the storm and find ourselves back in gentle winds.
I can honestly say that the stormy seas of serious illness came upon me with a vengeance in 2014. But the storm calmed and I knew beyond any doubt that God was with me on that journey. Will the calm wind always blow gently through the sails of my life? Probably not. Will God be with me when the storms come? Absolutely. I will hang on to that.
