Last night, I was thinking a lot about storms…

One reason for that was because there’s a hurricane very close 😂, but I think we can all identify with those “storms” of life .

Waking up in the middle of the night to the possibility of a hurricane as well as my upcoming appointment felt like a lot. So… I prayed about it and went back to sleep.

This morning, right before I walked into my doctors appointment, “Peace Be Still” sung by Hope Darst came on in my car (God encourages me a lot through music). The lyrics made me smile:

“I’m not gonna be afraid

‘Cause these waves are only waves

I’m not gonna be afraid

I’m not gonna be afraid

I’m not gonna fear the storm

You are greater than it’s roar

I’m not gonna fear the storm

I’m not gonna fear at all”

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

I know this to be true more than anything else. When the storms are raging in our lives (both literal and metaphorical), prayer produces peace.

I felt peace when the news was bad, just as I have felt peace as the news has been good (today’s news was good☺️☺️☺️)

Relying on the One who is in control continues to guard my heart and mind.

We appreciate everyone’s prayers more than you know!!❤️
