Silent storms are storms, nevertheless. There are so many people walking around holding in their storms. On the outside, it seems like a bright sunny day. Nothing looks out of the norm. The smile is there. The bright eyes are there. The willingness to help and serve is there. The positive attitude is there. But on the inside, it is dark and tumultuous. There is a build-up of worry, fear, anger, and uncertainty. It may not be you, but it may be the person standing next to you. It may be the person you just finished speaking to on the phone. It may be the person who you just overlooked or asked for help. We all must pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is so important that we do this because you never know who is dealing with a silent storm. It is the end of the year; it is also the holiday season, people have lost loved ones, and this time is especially hard for them. There is someone that is about to lose someone. Again, silent storms, things you have no idea are going on on the inside. Here are some key things to remember in life.
Pray for others.
Always walk in love.
Ask the question if they need your help.
If you think something is wrong or you sense a silent storm, do something nice to bring a smile to that person's face.
People never forget how you made them feel.
Father, thank You for being our peace during a storm. Allow those going through a silent storm to see Your face and feel an overwhelming sense of peace. Calm the storm. In Jesus' name. Amen.
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Mark 4:39 (KJV)
"Jesus, calm the silent storms that Your people are facing. Forgive me if I haven't notice any silent storms my friends are facing."- Alston Shropshire
