"He calms the storm so that its waves are still." – Psalm 107:29

This verse woke me up today.

There is no greater storm than grief.

I continue to receive letters from those who have read my book, many who are in the middle of their own dark storms.

There is no greater rest from grief than being still–without having to answer to anyone, fulfill any obligation, explain yourself or basically do anything. It is the rest that comes from giving yourself permission to feel the hurt and let your heart quietly absorb it–even though that generally hurts more…at least it's an honest hurt and an honest place for healing to start.

What storm in your life needs calming today? I have a list that seems to be growing. Maybe today is the day a few of the treacherous waves will break. Track your storms. Track the waves. Trust the One who can bring the calm.
