September 6

I don't know about you, but I'm in the boat with Jesus! When the storm raged and the swells on the sea began to rise, Jesus was resting. When he awakened, He reminded them of their lack of faith and then calmed the sea. Even though we worry and toil over what might happen next, Jesus is at peace within us. We must take a minute to tap into that peace. The storm on the horizon may be something like we've never seen, but our hope is not in the protection of this world. Even when "the war goddess, Irma" threatens to destroy us and our way of life, she cannot take the most precious thing we have, our salvation. Think about this: what do you really fear? Losing your life? That's in the hands of Jesus! Is it your lifestyle or your possessions? Your lifestyle and possessions can be replaced, but there's nothing that can take the place of Jesus, He is the only savior. If we should see our end, we will finally meet Jesus!

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1 John 4:18

Are you ready? If not, now may be a good time to turn your life over to the one who holds eternity in His hands. He is the perfect love that cast out all fear.
