Mark 4:36=39 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. (37) And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. (38) And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? (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.
AFTER THE STORM
Hopefully you will be reading this after the storm has passed. The damage has been done and the winds have subsided.
It is time for the clean up. Sometimes this can be more stressful than the storm itself. When marriages fall apart it is not easy to rebuild a family.
When financial storms hit and we have to start over, sometimes it can take many years to rebuild.
I could use many more examples but I could never cover them all. Rebuilding is hard and we often have to clean up a lot of debris from the storms before we can even begin. Only then can we really begin to rebuild after a storm.
Remember, if the storms of life have damaged you, and if you have cleaned out the debris and it is time to rebuild, you have to build on the right foundation, Jesus Christ.
