    Feeling weak, overwhelmed?

    Do you ever feel weak and overwhelmed? At times I sure do. Life can truly be tough, but life is just that – life. As children of the Most High God, we have His promises to take the weakness and overwhelming from us and put His strength and His stability in us. We need to stand on His promises to do that. Try it! It works for me every time, and I know it will work for you!

    Choose bold faith and demolish your doubts!

He was travelling by ship with some people when “a violent wind...[a northeaster, a tempestuous windstorm like a typhoon], came rushing down from the island” (v. 14). For days they were caught in the storm, and at one point it was so fierce, they were “violently tossed about by the storm” (v. 18) and had to throw the ship’s equipment overboard. They ended up without food, hungry, stranded – seemingly without hope.
