THE EYE OF THE STORM
9/9/2013




Find the peace in the eye of the storm. Sometimes GOD sends the storm to get our attention, but even in the storm, if we pay attention, we can feel the peace that He brings.

Nahum 1-7 The Lord is good a stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust Him.

I am an expert on storms I have had many in my life.......But I always trust and believe that at the end of the storm I come out stronger and more alive and closer to Jesus.

We are never given more than we can handle. We can always trust that Jesus is walking right along with us and if needed be He will carry us through.

I remember when I had to close my business, I was angry and disappointed. I was questioning God, and I was praying to God at the same time. I prayed to God to help me, but no help came I had to close the doors and walk away.

Why didn't God answer my prayers? He did! Not the way I expected but His way. The right way!

I made the business number 1 on my list, I put everything on hold including my writing and invested everything in the business: time, money and my heart!

I see now That Jesus wanted me to write about Him to bring the good news to others. By putting all my time into running my business I was neglecting what Jesus really wanted me to do.

Matt 4-19 And He said unto them “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men”

I'm not the expert in this Jesus is!!!

Yes, the truth comes out.

It is good when we finally take the hint.

Make sure we are right with him and then keep to the write(ing).

My hubby could have written this - it is so similar to our journey. He finds ways to make our busyness His!

A good story we can all relate to.

Such simple words, yet the profound truth. Yes, Jesus is the expert. It is so easy to get distracted... Looking forward to reading more of you works in the future.

I enjoyed this devotion. I really liked how you started with sharing a bit about yourself. It allows the reader to relate.

I'd encourage you to find a challenge buddy or a proofreader. Read other stories and if you find an author you feel you could connect with send them a PM and ask if they would be interested in being buddies. A proofreaders would help catch things like the capital t on that, or ellipsis has only three dots, or you should have a semi-colon after the word strong in the beginning.

You have a strong piece with a great message. It reminded me of a quote I really like: Sometimes God calms the storm, but other times he let's the storm rage, and instead calms his child.

During the break in the Weekly Challenge schedule, I’d like to invite you to the FaithWriters forums, where I’m holding a weekly free “class” in various writing strategies. Participation is strictly voluntary, but I give free and timely feedback on all contributions. I’d love to have you drop by! http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=67
