Peace in the storm

God, please help me! My father had just passed away and I was on an emotional roller coaster.  One minute I was coping and the next I was  in a deep pit of anguish and despair. I realised that now was the time   to pray for God’s peace that passes all understanding (see Philippians 4:7). When I returned home, I talked to my neighbour about my struggle. She gently reminded me of the peace that God so readily gives, and offered to pray for peace for me. This experience helped me to realise that God’s peace would get me through this time in my life.
Although I still miss my father greatly, I know that I am not alone in the midst of my anguish. God gives me the strength and peace to carry me through any storm.
We face  many storms in life. At times, it feels as if the pain is so deep that it will overwhelm us. We may feel alone in the depths of our despair. However, God has promised never to leave us or forsake us. When we pray in the midst of the storm, God will grant us the peace that passes all  understanding.

Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for always being there for us. In Jesus’ name. Amen
