Sometimes God Calms the Storm

I had an experience a few weeks ago while driving back from California that I’ve played back in my mind several times:

My family is going through the biggest trial of our lives and things have been pretty tough around here. While I was sitting in the car somewhere just outside Palm Springs, my thoughts started to wander to that dark place again. The place where fear is felt, sadness is debilitating, disappointment prevails, and anger takes over. These feelings have become so familiar to me over the past year and sometimes they are are extremely hard to shake.

I am a fix-it kind of girl but this trial is completely out of my control. And that is hard.

On this particular day, I was sitting in the car with my husband and 5 kids, but I felt alone. Knowing there was not anything I could do to fix the situation, I said a quiet prayer and asked for assistance to help shake this mood. In an instant, I felt comfort in my heart and some words came to mind that I will never forget: “It is all going to be ok.”

So simple, nothing profound. (Or maybe they were extremely profound.)

By no means did those words fix my problem and end my trial. But they came at a time when I needed them most and made me feel exactly how I needed to feel- comforted, not alone and full of hope.

I know this trial is definitely not over. And even though the course of action might be out of my control, I am relying on those words- that promise- that it will all be ok.

I know my family will heal and eventually get to a place where our days are not consumed by sadness. For now, I need to have patience, stay calm, be faithful and not give up.

  1. Steph, you don’t know just how much I needed this today. Today has been very stormy for me and I need God to calm me down. Just a reminder to give it all up to him! Thanks a million!

  2. What an encouraging post. Our family is going through a difficult situation and all I want to do is fix it myself, but I can’t. Friday, I knelt by the side of my bed and cried out to God. He definitely calmed me. Thanks for the printable! It’s exactly what I need right now. I’m praying for you too!

    • Thanks for your sweet comment Crystal. Trials are sucky, aren’t they!?!? I’m sorry you are going through a hard time- stay strong!!!!
