A Calm in the Midst


Some speak of a calm

before the storm

but there is a calm

in the midst of the storm

that comes from knowing

you are not alone

The Western Hemisphere has been struck by a monstrous alphabet of storms. First Harvey, then Irma and Jose, now Maria, each a “Storm of the Century.” But no storm of the century can stand against the God of Eternity. So Pray for those in the Gulf states, in the Caribbean countries, in Puerto Rico, and for those affected by Mexico’s Earthquake of the Century. Pray that they will know his presence, his comfort, and see his hand at work in the hands of those who arrive to remind them…

they are not alone.

    You know Mitch, there are times when I think you missed your true calling because you would make a great teaching Pastor. Then I realize God has you right where He needs you in order to gain the most impact from your heart. Great job!

      Aw, thank you, Ron. Actually, I’ve done a good deal of teaching and preaching over the years, but as you point out, God is currently employing that calling in different media. Blessings, my friend.
