Strength To Overcome When The Storms Hit

There are times in life when it feels like smooth sailing, and then there are times when the storms hit and life feels overwhelming and out of control. How do we get through these stormy times?

There is a beautiful story in the Bible about the disciples struggling with their boat on the stormy sea while Jesus walked on the water to be with them. As Jesus approaches, Peter asks if he can walk to Him on the water. Peter is invited to step out of the boat and walk on the sea. He walks for a moment but then instead of keeping his focus on Jesus and walking to Him he becomes terrified by the wind and the waves and begins to sink. After crying out for help he is taken by the hand and lifted up and he and Jesus climb into the boat and the storms cease.

There is a message for us in that story, don’t you think?

In Support Of Mental And Spiritual Health

We can all experience times of sadness, despair, depression and worry. And there are some of us that fall deeply into these kinds of feelings and we cannot seem to get back out again. Yes, mental illness is real. There are some of us who cannot, for one reason or another, live a balanced life without the support of therapy, medication and other means of support.

As a society we need to bring this topic into the light. We need to move it out of the place of shame and blame and recognize that people from all walks of life are suffering from mental illness and that we can do much more to support one another.

Join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as we break some of the silence around this topic.
