When the storm is raging, we call out to God from the depths of the deep we are drowning in .
We cry out. We ask Him to take the wheel of the vessel of our lives that is about to capsize from the waves crashing over it.
We let go of the wheel and step aside for Him to captain us through these rough waters in the dark of night.
But what do we do when the waters are still?
When our lives are calm for a time, like glass on a lake?
Do we forget to continue to call out to Him? Do we remember He brought us to this still place?
Do we turn once again to ourselves and the world to navigate our lives until the waves rage again?
Or in the stillness, do we continue to let Him lead us, to stay captain of the ship?
Do we give Him praise for not just getting us through the storm but for sailing us through blue skies.
Do we trust Him in and let Him take the wheel in whatever horizon He plans on leading us too?
Let us not just ask Him to be captain of the storm, but to ask Him to be the permanent captain of our vessel, through every day, even the still ones.
