When You Walk Through A Storm

In my childhood days it became even a point of principle to avoid conflict and confrontation.

Sure, there were sibling altercations, but that was inevitable when you look at my siblings. Other than that, I didn’t like the thought of a confronation and the concept of engaging in conflict was terrifying. I avoided it diligently.

This did not help me prepare for adulthood. It certainly did not help me out when it came to discovering the cost of following Jesus.

Storms in life are inevitable whether you’re a disciple of Jesus or not. The issue, though, is what happens when storms come along. The journey of faith makes those storms appear all the more fierce.

To address those storms requires not just a stance as such, but an approach. When storms come it’s often a good excuse to stay inside. Don’t make progress. Don’t keep going. Stay out from the storm.

There is that option. What if there was a more constructive alternative?
