This is our second week being physically separated from each other; yet it is our prayer that we become even more spiritually connected. There are only so many Hallmark movies, HGTV, ESPN and westerns that we can watch on television. This is our forty days in the wilderness, our three days in the belly of the whale and our time together on Noah’s Ark. The difference is, we can connect through many mediums. Listening, caring and sharing are a witness to our faith. As we pray for another on the telephone, through a letter, email, text message or social media, we offer hope Christ in turbulent times. While we are social distancing, let us bring families closer.

Love the Christ that dwells within you. Love on each other. Love on the neighborhood. With that love we find strength in the journey.
Our journey is receiving grace, mercy and the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us find our comfort as we immerse ourselves in scripture. There is action, love, mystery, drama and comedy – all right there in the Book. Yes, the Holy Bible is the book of instruction that will help us Ride Out the Storm.

Prayer: Dear God, please forgive us this day. May we be a light in the darkness, offer shelter from the storm and be your instrument of peace. In Jesus Name Amen

Lesson: God is in control of the storm.
Scripture Reading – Psalm 107:28-32 (KJV)

“Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so, he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh, that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt him also in the
congregation of the people and praise him in the assembly of the elders.”
