I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Winter storms can be wicked. Howling winds, a blizzard of snow, ice on everything. I remember them when I was a kid. I'd huddle under the covers, listening to the branches of the tall oak trees beat on my bedroom window; the moaning wind that made me feel so scared. Ah, but in the morning, what a different story. The howling would be gone, no more blizzard. It was so quiet and when I would get up and look out the window – ah, everything was so beautiful! The storm may have seemed wicked, but the fright of it all was soon forgotten in the beauty. Maybe you are going through a winter season? A frightening time when everything is breaking loose? Listen to Jesus telling you, “Peace be still.” Be assured; the God who brings beauty out of blizzards and the Savior who brings serenity out of storms, will do the same for you.
