I stumbled across this in some old documents I kept, and felt like sharing it.
If you are experiencing a life issue you have never experienced before, perhaps God is calling you to chase hard after Him in a way you have never had to before.
It is easy to run with Him when He runs…it’s exciting. Being still before Him when He is still is harder. It does not mean you have been abandoned or set aside. He is constantly at work in you, refining you, stretching and building and strengthing your faith.
In these quiet times when circumstances seems to be beyond your control, Jesus is climbing into your boat, seeking to calm you instead of calming the storm. The storm is not nearly as meaningful or important to Him as you are. Trust Him. “peace…be still.”
