1-2. Justin ran the bases and across home plate…twice!
3-4. Drew spent time with Melissa outside of the hospital and is breathing without the assistance of oxygen!
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end.
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Our friend, Drew, and Justin both have long journeys ahead. We are still in the midst of storms, but this past weekend has afforded quieter moments and soothed souls.
God has revealed Himself to us in the form of small miracles. Our supreme hope is in the gospel of Jesus Christ. But our hope in the ultimate healing of both Drew and Justin is renewed each time God quiets the storms. May God continue to grant us deeper and stronger faith should the storms rise up louder and more threatening than before.
Storms of life take on many different forms with countless variables. And everyone has them. May yours be hushed as you lean into Jesus. Grace be with you, my friends.
