"The Sudden Storm Attitude"

Dear All,
Thank you so much for your emails of concern and the prayers you have/are praying for our family. There were far too many for me to reply to each one personally. I am touched and overwhelmed. You are all a blessing to me.
I am rejoicing still in the faithfulness and goodness of the Lord to us in this, as well as every situation we face. He truly is who He says He is-- Healer, Comforter, Peace, Provider, etc.
Thank you again.
Love and blessings,

"And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep." Matthew 8:24
I awoke this morning to the sound of thunder and flashes of lightening. This was not in the forecast for today. The storms were forecast for tomorrow. This is a perfect example of the way life is. There is no sign of a "storm" brewing in our lives. The "skies" are blue and everything is going well. Then all of a sudden you hear the roar of thunder and your life is being filled with wave after wave.
When the storms come upon us suddenly, what is our attitude? Is it like the disciples? Fearful? Accusing God? Is our attitude like Jesus? He was not distressed by the storm. He was not frightened. He was not afraid. He was asleep. He was resting in the arms and will of His Father. He knew His Father was with Him. He was at perfect peace. His disciples should have been also because they were not alone-- He was with them. They should not have been fearful because they had His word to guide them through. 
Storms are a given in life. Some we see coming, others happen suddenly. But what will our attitude be when they do? One of peace because we are at rest trusting in God's faithfulness? Or one of fear and worry?
Have a great day. What is your attitude when storms of life come? How do you respond to them?
