THE EYE OF THE STORM

The safest place to be in a fierce storm is right in the middle of it, the “eye of the storm.” It is a roughly circular area, typically 20–40 miles (30–65 km) in diameter, and is surrounded by the eyewall, the most violent part of the storm. Winds in the eyewall can blow at dangerous speeds of more than 155 miles per hour (250 km/h), causing havoc and death on their path. But the condition in the eye of a storm is calm or peaceful, with clear skies or sunshine, little or no precipitation, and light, gentle breezes. Are you facing violent storms in your life? Are life’s furious winds of confusion and devastation swirling around you? Move to the CENTER! Connected with Christ, you can be there in “perfect peace” (Isaiah 26:3; John 16:33; cf. Matthew 14:22-33; Mark 4:35-41).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
