About six years ago, I wrote an article that was titled, Thanking God in the Storm. Little was I to know of the storms that awaited my family and me over the next few years. Knowing that God is with us in the storm, is the comfort of the Christian who is completely surrendered to Him. Today, my trust is still in Him!
"And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat." Acts 27:35
Thanking God for the good things that happen to you is much easier than thanking Him when the storms blow in. Recently, while reading in the book of Acts, where Paul was being taken as a prisoner to Rome, I read the account where the ship ran aground. The sailors tried to abandon ship with a crafty scheme, and Paul advised the centurion to not let anyone leave the boat if they wanted to be saved. It was after this very tense moment, when the soldiers over-powered the sailors, that I find a very interesting thing happened.
