Experiencing the Savior's Presence When You Need Him Most
Peace can be found in a variety of ways, but you need to be watching for it. It could be the helping hand of a stranger. Or it could be in something you read. This inner miracle of peace is a gift from God which we can all experience. This doesn't mean that you won't experience the storms of life just that you will be at peace during them.
God's Word is a daily source of comfort and His comforting presence is revealed in many of the Psalms. Though we can lose all our earthly possessions in life's storms God's love can never be lost to us as long as we don't reject God. Peace from God can also be found in daily time of prayer and in spending time with others who are part of the body of Christ.
Music can also be a source of comfort. Which I can totally agree with, after being involved in a car accident I've suffered from panic attacks. But music has a calming effect and keeps the panic attacks at bay (Christmas music is my music of choice in the car if you're curious).
At Peace in the Storm is a book that everyone should have in their home. Yes, it will help you at the time you or a loved are caught up in a storm, but it will provide you with a foundation before the storm hits. Sources of comfort can be found all around us and this book will help us to open our eyes to see and our ears to listen.
I was provided a copy of this book by Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
When You Need a Savior Who Stills the Wind
“Here's the rub about faith. Sure, prayer often changes outward things, but the only guaranteed miracle God offers us is inner peace, the peace of Christ. A peace so crazy deep that it cannot be analyzed or understood. It descends on us even when everything else is falling apart, while the drug-addicted child does not come to his senses, or the job offer doesn't pan out, or the cancer rages and the marriage is a hollow mess. But I'll let you in on a secret. This miracle of the ‘inner variety,’ this inexplicable and supernatural calm in the storm, is the greatest miracle you'll ever experience.”
Bestselling author Ken Gire weaves together stories from the Bible, history, and his own life to reveal how we can find strength and encouragement through the storms of life. Experience the joy of knowing the God who is always there to reach out a hand and pull you out of the waves.
