Waves Of Life 

This week has been mentally, physically and spiritually draining. It seems that if it could go wrong, it did. Life is like the sea. The water can be calm and peaceful but the waves are going to come. Sometimes it’s little bumps and then it can be waves so fierce that you are knocked down and pulled under.

So how do we withstand these fierce waves?


Through prayer, reading God’s word, faith, and trust in a mighty God, we can continue standing as the waves crash over us.

It is important to seek God’s kingdom first because it prepares us how to react during troublesome times and we will less likely react in a fleshly manner that could lead to sinful actions. If we are too caught up in the busyness of everyday life, it’s easy to forget.

I didn’t handle much of anything this week. I learned that God already knew about my rough day or in my case a rough week and he already had a solution. Him. He is the only who could give you strength to continue standing as the waves of life bare down on you. The waves will come and they will pull you down if you are not ready.
Psalm 93:4 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea– the LORD on high is mighty.


Hannah B. (2)
