"If the Lord can calm a storm, He can prevent one. So when He permits you to go through storms, it’s to show you that you don’t have a problem He can’t solve; that you may be powerless in the situation but He’s not; and that through this experience you’ll come to know Him in a way you have never known Him before. So learn these lessons well and come out stronger on the other side."
This was on the facebook page of Bobby Avilez, a missionary friend in Thailand. By experience he understands this, and his family is a role model to us. I thank God for you, Bobby.
