Last year, God led me to write a book where I encourage believers in Christ to rise above life’s unprecedented storms with faith and courage. I wrote the book from having personally experienced storms in my own life and watching God faithfully come through for me time and time again. When the book was published that same year, God’s message was clear: He wasn’t finished with it or me yet.
This year, God allowed me and my loved ones to go through various storms through which the message of the book began to surface. People who have read the book often tell me that it’s beautifully written, but miss that it’s more than just beautiful words on paper; it’s the message that has sustained me and can sustain everyone going through their own storms.
A family member says that they’ve heard the story of Jesus and Peter walking on water come up more than once this year. I tell them that maybe God is trying to tell, or teach, them something through it. For me, it’s been about living out the miracle that I so often tell others they can experience when they step out of the boat and find out the best that God has in store for them when they trust Him enough to embrace life’s storms.
