Brian’s mom was very sick.
He and his family prayed that God would heal her, and it became evident that God would indeed answer their prayers.
In His loving regard for her life and the commitment and devotion of her family, God would heal her by taking her safely home.
A few weeks prior to her passing away I was reading Psalm 107.
I felt impressed to send her a note which would include these words.
Not much time had passed when I would read these words before the passing of my own mother.
And since that time I have sent these words to more than one who was coming out of the storm and heading toward their own safe harbor.
The stillness of a storm that has passed is hard to describe.
There is a beauty, a quiet rest, a peace.
No more wind.
No more waves.
No more pain.
No more sickness.
No more sorrow.
It is the safety of the harbor that we seek at the end of the journey.
But it is during the highest of seas that we learn to sail our ship.
“He calms the storm and stills the waves. What a blessing is that stillness as he brings them safely into harbor.” Psalm 107:29-30 (TLB)
