Finding rescue from the storm

When you are drowning in problems stemming from your thoughts, words, actions, and relationships, you might want to run (or swim) from them. You want rescue from the storm. Depending on where you land, those problems might become bigger, multiply in more areas of your life, and make you weaker in your resolve to change habits and correct what is going wrong. The problem with looking to yourself or anyone or anything outside yourself is like looking to a broken cistern to hold water. As much as we have been given gifts from our maker, we need the giver of those gifts to help us use them well.

Preparing for rescue from the storm before it hits

As you look through this site, you will know with confidence to whom you should run to with all of your problems. As you will see, you can learn to start each day running to him for guidance and to thank him for his presence before you plan what you will do, before the problems, before the solutions. You will find hope that you will be given strength to face all that is wrong, the grace to change habits that make things so, and you will know who to give thanks to with a sustained gratitude that doesn’t forget who carries you through life even giving you rest in the arduous process, that ever-present help in times of distress in your upward climb toward learning to love.

Learning to love as you find rescue from the storm

As you can see from the circle diagram, you will learn here not only how to resolve battles (Slippery Slope), but to live in such a way that you prevent them from occurring in the first place (Upward Climb). No, it’s not to be alone so you have no one else to fight with. You have plenty of thoughts to fight within yourself. Some of those will lead you become angry with yourself, others, God, or all three. Some of those will lead you to be anxious and run to harmful places that don’t provide rescue from the storm. It’s time to commit to learning a new approach.

Being at rest as you find true rescue from the storm

That new approach begins by seeking for opportunities to give. Since you have been rescued, you want others to find rescue from the storm too. You know you can’t rescue anyone, but you can point others to the one who rescued you. This site is attempting to show you the lighthouse beacon in the stormy waters of life that is big enough and perfectly suited for you to take shelter there, equip you with all you need for life. As you learn to trust Jesus to carry you in your upward climb as if with hinds feet through high and rocky places, he will send you forth in this manner, taking all the burdens while remaining with you so that though you are on an arduous upward climb, what you perceive is rest. How, you say? Remember his promise to be with you and care for you as you trust him to carry you. And as he carries you, you find true rescue from the storm and you delight and rest in him!

Praising him for his rescue from the storm

    “He made the storm be still,

        and the waves of the sea were hushed. 

    Then they were glad that the waters were quiet,

        and he brought them to their desired haven. 

    Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,

        for his wondrous works to the children of man! 

    Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,

        and praise him in the assembly of the elders.” 

~ Psalm 107:29-32

Singing Psalm 107 for rescue from the storm

There is nothing more mood altering than singing the Psalms. They display the freedom we have to run to Jesus with every emotion as we meditate, praise, thank, and worship him for who he is, our all in all.
