Last week we focused on detaching from the things that keep us from Jesus. This week we focused on fixing our eyes on Jesus. In the midst of the storms of life, we came become distracted by the wind and waves around us. We get caught up in what is happening that we forget who we’re with.

As I said yesterday, we all face storms. Some of those storms are storms of identity: who am I? What am I doing? What should I be doing? Does what I’m doing really matter? Some of those storms are storms of relationships: Am I really loved? Do I love others? Will others love me if they knew the “real” me? Some of those storms are storms of circumstance: Why is my health failing? Will I lose my job? Will I find another job?

What storms of life have you faced? Have they helped you to grow or did they cause setbacks? How might you have faced them differently? Are you facing any storms currently.
