Our ship headed toward the North Atlantic. The plan was to out run a major storm near Europe. The ship rattled as the cranks pushed us to our destination. All the hatches were shut and everything was tied down except the seamen on board.
Most of us struggled to maintain our composure as seasickness was taking its toll. My face was green so I was sent up top to check some equipment. It was a ploy for me to get me some fresh air. The winds were furious.
The flight deck is 100 feet from the water, but not that day. Swells all around were well over the height of the ship. The vessels that accompanied the carrier spent most of their time under water. Fear erased the sickness in my stomach. Fortunately, we caught the tale end of the storm and survived.
Are you in a storm? Ask Him to guide you to a safe harbor.
“They saw the Lord's works, His wonderful works in the deep. He spoke and raised a tempest that stirred up the waves … their courage melting away … their skill was useless. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, He stilled the storm to a murmur, and the waves of the sea were hushed… Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for.” Psalm 107:24-30.
