With all the upheaval, disappointments from unanswered prayers, and wrestling with God to turn on the light, many feel abandoned, perhaps imprisoned by abhorrent emotions. This doesn't need to be the end of your story. You can rewrite it. The pastor noted to make a commitment to yourself that you will live every day as a new day. "Stabilize your soul with the sovereignty of God. He reigns supreme over every detail of the universe," he wrote.

No matter where you are now, you have a God who is calling out to you that whatever is going on in your life it matters to Him. If God sent Christ to you and adored you above the angels, know that He is bigger than your fears, depression and hopelessness. The Bible said if you continue in the Word, you will be set free. This means from fear, torments and whatever is inhabiting you. "Remember the mind can't at the same time be full of God and full of fear," wrote Lucado. Redirect your thinking to redirect your life and the violence of the storm will relinquish.
