My friend Cesar is texting me this morning from Puerto Rico as Hurricane Maria’s 155 mph winds lash his building. He was on the 15th floor, but when the building began to sway, he moved down to the lobby.

“Both elevators have water dripping. A window was left open and water is coming in.”

Text is an amazing thing. You can be going through a hurricane and still give reports from the middle of it.

Jesus tells us that “in life we will have storms.”* And then he tells us to take heart. But when you’re in a storm, sometimes all you feel is fear. Your fight or flight instinct kicks in.

What do I text back to Cesar? What do we tell anyone who is going through a storm? What would you text him?

 

* John 16:33
