Several days after an earthquake hit the San Francisco area, the story is told that a young boy was seen rocking and swaying on the school playground. His principal asked him if he was okay and the boy nodded and said, “I am moving like the earth, so if there’s another earthquake I won’t feel it.” He was trying to prepare himself for what he thought was soon coming again.

Don’t you wish you knew when the next storm would hit?  Not weather. Life storms.  We have an old cliche’ which says, “Into every life some rain must fall.”  Have you ever felt snarky enough to say, “Yeah rain.  But this is a storm! A downpour with lightning and thunder accompanied by a monsoon!” I think it is relatively safe to say that storms affect us all…to some degree. Some seem to always be in a storm, while others seem to skip some major ones.  There is no doubt we have been and are still in a storm called Covid-19.  I think the fear caused by it which has resulted in a shutdown of our economy, our work, our churches, our schools, businesses, and in some ways our whole way of life, has led to multiple other storms.

Sunday I am continuing my Q & A series with the question What about Storms?  (Bet you didn’t know that did you?) 🙂 I’m going to talk about some storms which were chasing David and then why that makes Psalm 13 such a rich chapter for us to study. I’ll show you in another post how every one of David’s haunting questions is answered by a solid answer.

Join us if you would like to. The church has a FB page and also streams on YouTube.  I’d love to have you join me/us.  And I’d appreciate it even more if you would commit to praying for us.

    I’m sure that lesson was a much appreciated one, Bill. Even if we weren’t facing any other storms this year (which is impossible though, yes?), covid-19 has definitely brought its own family of storms with it, in so many unexpected ways. Thanks for your pastoral ministry in person and online in helping us navigate the storms with God at the helm.

    I am sure with this covid issue everyone has had some storms. Just when we some peace, it starts all over again. My daughter is a para at a school and she is so stress out everyday due to the rules changing all the time. So if the teachers and para and parents are stressed out then these kids will be to. Our grand daughter had to come home from
    bible school
    for 14 days because her room mate had the virus. thank God she did not get it. She is back in bible school now.
