Monday Morning Munch No. 144 – Swirling Seas and the Steadfast Savior

The above is from Paul David Tripp’s devotional New Morning Mercies.

It’s been a tough weekend (season), but my sweet dad read this devotional to me on the way to church yesterday and it was such an encouraging reminder of the steadfast presence and faithfulness of God, which remains despite (and sometimes because of) the swirling sea we sometimes find ourselves in.

I hope this encourages you as well. We aren’t alone in this thing—He is with us and we have each other. So as the waves rise and triggers our blood pressure to do the same, let’s lean in together and remember to zone in on the one who walks across the sea to meet us in our mess.

“Oh, I know the wind can bring the lightning
Oh, I know the lightning brings the rain
Oh, I know the storm can be so frightening
But that same wind is gonna blow that storm away…”
-Andrew Peterson, The Dark Before the Dawn
