I was privileged to be taken for a ride. Picture a roller coaster minus the rails! That’s what it felt like sitting in a T-6 fighter jet diving, rising and diving again with a vertical velocity of ten thousand feet per minute!
I know where to stare in turbulence. My eyes were on the pilot. If he was okay, I was okay.
Peter learned the same lesson the hard way. Exchange the plane for a 30-foot fishing boat in the middle of the sea. The lake, like a blender, blowing first from one direction, then another.
Tossed by the waves … Just substitute a couple of nouns…
In the middle of a divorce, tossed by guilt.
In the middle of debt, tossed by creditors.
“Don’t be afraid. Take courage, I am here!”
“I am here” changes everything! Look into the turbulence. Look into the storm. That’s Jesus coming toward you!
