Last week Tuesday started out with losing a precious friend, a week of deep grief and funeral preparations, to this Tuesday, Symon's birthday... and what a day.
This last week has been full of dark and sad moments, but despite the dark grey clouds overhead, there have been piercing rays of sunlight breaking through, because I know that even when the dark clouds come, the sun never ceases to shine.
It is much easier to trust when the sun is shining than when the storm is raging.
We never know how much real faith we have until it is put to the test in some fierce storm;
and that is the reason why the Saviour is on board.
If you are ever to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might,
your strength will be born in some storm.

So thankful for the anchor of hope in the dark storms of life - Jesus.
