Spurgeon: the storm

Sunday, September 4, 2011
    Commemoration of Birinus, Bishop of Dorchester (Oxon), Apostle of Wessex, 650
He stilled the storm to a whisper;
    the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm,
    and he guided them to their desired haven.
    —Psalm 107:29-30 (NIV)
    Fear not the storm, it brings healing in its wings, and when Jesus is with you in the vessel, the tempest only hastens the ship to its desired haven.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit: Sermons, v. XXVII, London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1882, p. 373 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I trust no guide but You.
