Sounds Crazy to Me!

kayak“I am grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to spend this special time with Him and for helping me realize that there really is no place for stress or fear.”
These are the words of a gentleman who was caught in an unexpected, yet violent storm while kayaking in the Chesapeake Bay. Though it was a sunny day, they could see clouds on the horizon and decided to stay close to shore. While enjoying their session, the guy’s wife radioed that the storm was picking up speed, causing the group to return to base. Within five minutes of shore, the storm slammed into the coast causing 4-5′ white capped waves that pushed him out to open water.
In his own words, “Talking to God was never so real. Although I had to use the skills I learned to get back safely, the outcome was not in my control. Our role is to put in the appropriate effort; God is responsible for the outcome. That’s what I was thinking about as I was being thrown around in my kayak in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. A sudden sense of calm overtook me and I no longer felt any fear. I knew with certainty that my fate was not up to me.”
This guy was not crazy, but actually quite sane, when he said it was a “special time” with God. Life’s storms can be special if we choose to focus on Jesus and to use our biblical tools before and in the midst of those storms. As you exercise the truth during such times, you’ll become more like Jesus, which pays off today and well into eternity.
Your job is to believe, which means using your biblical tools every day everywhere (including storm kayaking) and to leave the results to Jesus. You can not only trust Him to get you through life’s storms, but through them successfully as well.
