From our lips to God’s ear … calming the storm at Mt Kosciusko, Australia’s snowy mountains

My husband loves to ski, but has not been skiing for many years. His sister was heading up to Kosciusko for a week and I suggested he go with them … after thinking about it … for about 3 seconds (no he did take longer than that), he decided to go for it, and in a matter of days was all booked to go.

(Mark 4:35-41 NIV)

(John 14:12 NIV)

My husband was determined to ski, and so he stepped out into his authority, spoke to the storm, and it was stilled.  A storm diverted, and he could ski because …

God is Good!
