We often think that our joy is dependent on our circumstances- when things are going well, there’s peace and all is still, we have joy. We feel like God has given us favor. But what about when the storms are swirling around us? Are we being punished? Do we not have enough faith?
When we say we surrender our lives to God, we must really mean it. Often, I say it but I think I secretly mean, ok God, I surrender so now you will bless me. Not always so.
We must recognize that God is in the storms as much as the stillness. He wants us to surrender to Him regardless of the outcome.
Join me today as I talk about the recent lesson He taught me through a literal storm and the one I have been feeling emotionally as well. I pray it encourages you to keep your eyes on Him and not your circumstances.
