for January 6, 2017
A south wind blew gently, and thinking they had attained their objective, they weighed anchor and sailed along close to the coast of Crete. Before long an offshore wind of hurricane force called a “Northeaster” struck. Since the ship was caught up in it and could not head into the wind we gave way and let ourselves be driven. We passed along the sheltered side of an island named Cauda and managed only with difficulty to get the dinghy under control. They hoisted it aboard, then used cables to undergird the ship. Because of their fear that they would run aground on the shoal of Syrtis, they lowered the drift anchor and were carried along in this way. We were being pounded by the storm so violently that the next day they jettisoned some cargo, and on the third day with their own hands they threw even the ship’s tackle overboard. Neither the sun nor the stars were visible for many days, and no small storm raged. Finally, all hope of our surviving was taken away. Acts 27:13-20
For the LORD takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory. Psalm 149:4
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” [And] Jesus said to her, “Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.” John 1:2-5
Acts 27:12-20, Psalm 149 & John 1:2-5
What we see as the end think all is lost and then God places it on your heart to survive by taking every thought, action and deed and walking Him in the avenues of a journey of whatever His Divine Will sets you on. Paul consumed everything he did in practice, prayer and proclamation to the lost, lonely and languished. His like ours should be the sharing of Life Eternal by the love, faith and hope of Charity; Jesus! Amen. Storms will rage as God tells you tell the storms He is the BIGGEST for He is the Creator of the storms as Divine Providence steering life.
Here, we find our hardest objective; to follow God First in all things allowing the Spirit of Truth run the objects stacked, stored or stagnate right out of your life. Victory is the poorness of everything less living life as prayer not life as work. Give to God what He asks of you in sharing the Salvation His Son died for on a Cross for. Give the anchor a heave and set the course of you in Him and the Divine Will of peace, passion and persistence will give Way to doing everything Jesus asks of you. The storm will pass as His Divine Providence not a soul can run from for we all know the last shipwreck of life drowns us by Him. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. Lord, I am sorry. Please forgive us as we forgive others. Please be with us always. We will try to live mercy as the Works of You. We pray for each other for our warriors risking life for liberty, our leaders who guide us faithfully and for family or friends sick or troubled alone and afraid. We pray for all intentions in the silence of your own heart. Prayers for Tim and Michelle. Prayers of thanksgiving for family. Closerwalkmedia.com. IN Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Storm no sun just stars chandelier
Situated unfavorably winter spending sail
Looking for a harbor gentle wind they dared
Struck northeastern or force hurricane wind
Driven way gave the head caught ship transcend
Controlling dinghy difficulty onboard to steer
Anchor drift lowered shoal ground fear
Ship undergird cables used as preventative gear
Cargo jettisoned violently storm pounded severe
Away taking survival raging storm no sun just stars chandelier
