Fighting the Gale

He is not the safest sailor who never saw a tempest;

he will do for fair-weather service, but when the storm is rising,

place at the important post the man who has fought out a gale,

who has tested the ship,

who knows her hulk sound,

her rigging strong,

and her anchor-flukes able to grasp and hold by the ribs of the world.

~excerpt Streams in the Desert

My friend, if you are sailing through a storm, be assured that your Saviour is strong, His grip is sure and He will sail with you through this tempest to bring you safely to the other shore.

In Him,

Alesha Kay
