Row, Row, Row...

Row, Row, Row your boat...

I forgot to mention what our job is in the storm...besides trusting Jesus.

It's pretty simple stuff really...We row.
It's not very glamorous and sometimes easier said than done.
Nevertheless, we must keep rowing.
Feel alone and afraid?

Keep rowing.

Feel angry and overwhelmed?

Keep rowing.

Max Lucado wrote a great devotional on this subject-
“He went into the hills to pray.” Mark 6:46

"What does Jesus do while we are in the storm? You’ll love this. He prays for us . . .
So where does that leave us?

While Jesus is praying and we are in the storm, what are we to do?
Simple. We do what the disciples did. We row . . .
Much of life is spent rowing . . . Getting out of bed. Fixing lunches . . . More struggle than strut."

God, Thank You for the stamina You have instilled in each one of us.

In His Dust,
