Sometimes He calms the storms

I love the words to the song by Scott Krippayne, “Sometimes He Calms the Storm.” The line of the song that is so riveting is, Sometimes He calms the storm, and other times He calms His child...

The pity party is over for me right now, and I feel as though God has calmed my storm, which I think is usually a little easier. It's much easier when God calms my storm rather than calms me. Because I am stubborn and difficult to change, I'm thankful God has calmed my storm and given me grace to have peace.

Pity Party

I remember after graduating from college (the first time) and coming out of depression, I learned how often in my life I had pity parties for myself without realizing it. Today I threw myself another pity party. The difference now is I can recognize that I'm having a pity party for myself, but doggone it, I just want to stay at the party. Leaving the party right now means having to walk by faith and have hope, and right now faith and hope take so much effort that I'd rather just stay at the party. It just seems much easier for right now.
