In this country we’ve now started to name storms. I don’t think this lessens their power. Last winter our area was battered by Storm Desmond. Last week we were promised another furious storm. In our area at least it just didn’t happen. Some rain, occasionally heavy, but no wind. Our precautions were unnecessary but wise.
This felt rather like life to me. We look to the future and are overcome by the terrible things that could happen. We make preparations but nothing helps our worry. As the future is completely unknown, it is wise to listen to the One who knows exactly what will happen. Then we can rest in His knowledge and not fret.
