Fighting the Storm
By: Michelle Ross



The wind roars, the rain stings as it beats against my skin, thunder rumbles, and lighting flashes across the dark gray sky. Only thing I could do is press forward, continue along the path, and focus moving forward, and not all that surrounds me. My body trembles from the cold and my hair soaked from the rain.
Up ahead I see a light directing me. I focus on that light and continue forward. Waves crash against the boat making it hard to control, but I fight against the storm for I know the light is my safety.
I know that there I can take refuge. So I continue to press forward.
Although the storm intensifies and I feel that I a weakening but I will not rear to the left or to the right nor turn and go back because if I do I won’t be in the direction of the light.
Although I feel weak from the beating I am taking I look forward towards the light and it seems to strengthen me. Holding fast, firm, pushing forward, and moving on I knows that I will reach that safety. My heart pounds and tears of joy fill my eyes as I draw closer towards the light.
The end


Much like us in everyday life ……..
Although we face storms and trials we stand fast and press forward towards the light.
Jesus is the light and the way. When you feel you can’t handle any more, that is when he will come in and carry you to safety. So be strong and courageous and know he will never leave you nor forsake you. Follow Jesus he is the way.

James 1:2-12
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 that man should not think he would receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.

9 the brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. 10 but the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower. 11 for the sun rise with scorching heat and wither the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business.

12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
(From the Holy Bible: New International Version.

I justv wanted to say that as we seek His devine grace there are times when we may face things which seem unbearable but if we continue to seek Him we cant do nothing but succeed. stay diligent in your devotions and your way on the golden path.
