Longfellow said, Into every life a little rain must fall. Most adults have found this to be true; what's more, for many of us it has been more than a little rain. Our lives may have experienced storms and tests that have left us feeling like New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Storms from relationship failures, family problems, health problems, and financial problems have blown into our lives and have wreaked havoc on our calm seas.In Weathering the Storms of Life, author and pastor Ricky D. Bishop provides guidance for enduring the storms of life while keeping faith intact and experiencing growth at the same time. Using his family's encounters riding out Hurricane Isabel in eastern North Carolina in September of 2003, Bishop discusses storm at sea passages from the Bible and relays principles for preparing, finding peace, finding power, and rethinking our priorities in the storms that come our way.Providing encouragement and simple lessons, Weathering the Storms of Life weaves scriptural insights and the threads of modern-day life to help you not only survive the tough times in your life, but learn from them as well.
