Faith When It's Windy

Faith is... holding on...

      Tonight we are expected to have a windchill factor of -5 to -15 degrees.   Brrrr is one word for it.  The wind just runs right thru the body down to the bone.  It makes it feel colder than it really is.
      Life is full of windchill moments that can break us down to the core too.  Burdens, like financial demands, illness, or loss of someone close, can strip us of our grip on life's perspective.  As the caption illustrates, we must cling to our faith that will sustain us.
      2 Corinthians 4; 7-9  ''But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.''
      Is your faith stronger than the winds of this life?  If your roots are deep, there is no need to fear the wind.
