A Blustery Day

Yesterday was a Winnie the Pooh kind of day, with winds whipping garbage pails, recycling bins and all sorts of stuff all over the  neighbourhood. It certainly was a blustery day. The kind of day in which Winnie the Pooh would find all sorts of adventures. The kind of adventures where he would get himself in a real pickle, only to be rescued by Christopher Robin, his best friend.

Sometimes we find ourselves facing a “Blustery Day”. Those days where we find ourselves facing the winds of tribulation; those things which bring all kinds of stress into our lives. In times like this we may feel that we have no place to turn to. We feel as though we need a “Christopher Robin” to rescue us.

But we have something or Someone, Who is far better than Christopher Robin, we have the Lord Jesus Christ. He has promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us, and as He calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee, He is able to calm the storms in our hearts.

There is nothing that He isn’t capable of handling. After all, He is the Lord of the universe. This means that the next time that you face a blustery day, you have the wind at your back because your Lord is walking with you.


About faithfullyhis

My name is Charles Quail and I am a retired Baptist pastor who lives in Dunnville,a small town southeast of Hamilton, Ontario. I also write a weekly column for our local newspaper, The Sachem. It is a column that I have been writing for about eight years. I am married and have two grown daughters. My best buddy was my dog Max, who is now chasing bunny rabbits in sky. I miss him terribly. My reason for wanting to write a blog is friends have told me that this is the next logical step in my writing career. My hope and prayer is that many will be both challenged and blessed by what I write.
