When you hear this week’s song, “Praise You In This Storm” by Casting Crowns, do you think of your own storm? Perhaps you know the story behind the song and think of Erin, the little girl who inspired the song. Maybe you remember that the song was released on the radio just as Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast, and you think of that storm. This week I want to lead you to the Garden of Gethsemane and the storm raging in Jesus before his arrest and crucifixion.
Perhaps by considering the storm that was raging in the life of our Messiah, we can learn how to better handle our own storms.
