Sometimes, rather than asking Jesus to take away the storm, it’s more appropriate to walk towards Him in the midst of the storm.
He is calling you to Himself. Leave the familiar. Step out of your boat, even though the storm is raging. Walk towards Jesus. He’s right there, beckoning you to come to Him.
God’s great desire is to share his identity and his nature with us. He wants us to know and have his love, his purpose and his agenda so we can partner with him and be driven by what drives him.
– Shawn Bolz, Translating God
“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.”
