The man was a warrior, he had gone through tough situations in the past and looked calm while his wife seemed shaken and almost hopeless of survival.
The boat was small and the storm was really huge, and any moment they were going to be drowned. But the man sat silently, calm and quiet, as if nothing was happening. The woman was trembling and she said, “Are you not afraid?”
This may be our life’s last moment! It doesn’t seem that we will be able to reach to the other shore. Only a miracle can save us; otherwise death is certain.
Looking at her husband’s she yelled, “Are you not afraid! Are you mad! Are you a stone!”
The man laughed and took his sword out of its sheath.
The woman was even more puzzled thinking what he was up to?
Then he brought the naked sword close to the her neck, so close that just a small move could have cut her throat.
He said,” Are you afraid?”
She started to laugh and said,” Why should I be afraid if the sword is in your hands, why I should be afraid? I know you love me.”
He put the sword back and said, “this is exactly my answer too”.
I know God Loves me, and the storm is in His hands
SO WHATSOEVER IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS GOING TO BE GOOD.
If we survive, good; if we don’t survive, good, because everything is in His hands and He cannot do anything wrong.
This is the trust which one needs to have, such tremendous trust is capable of transforming our whole life. Any less won’t do!
