Recently, I heard something curious about the differences between the way a chicken faces a storm and the way an eagle faces a storm.
A chicken runs for her life, scatters up dust, and causes panic for herself and every other chicken in the hen house.
An eagle calmly take advantage of a storm by letting the down draft lift it up so it can reach higher altitudes.
Interesting thought . . . how do we face a storm in our life? Like a chicken or an eagle? Maybe . . . both.
Psalm 107 is all about the storms in life. There’s a few verses that show us the way to weather the storm . . . first as a chicken, but ending as an eagle:
“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.” (Psalm 107:28-30, NIV).
Memory verse of the week:
“He still the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed” (Psalm 107:29).
