designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of
trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.
Charity Island is the largest island in Saginaw Bay in the Michigan
waters of Lake Huron. For many years the island has provided a
lighthouse for navigational aid and a safe harbor for those sailing
these waters. The island received its name because sailors believed
it was there “through the charity of God.”
Sometimes in life we have to navigate through seas of troubling
circumstances. Like those sailors we need guidance and a place of
safety; we might wish for our own Charity Island. The psalmist
understood that God is the one who can bring tranquility to troubled
waters and guide us to safe harbors. He wrote, “He stilled the storm
to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when
it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven” (Ps.
While no one asks for the storms of life, they can multiply our
appreciation for the guidance and refuge God provides. He offers the
light of His Spirit and His Word to guide us. It is the safe harbor
of His love that we long for. He alone can be our ultimate “Charity
Father, help me to seek Your light to guide me through the
storms of life.
The living God will always be our shelter.
Today’s psalm reminds us that God can indeed guide us to safe havens
in the midst of life’s storms and trials. However, this psalm also
reminds us that the same God who calms the storm and points the way
to our “desired haven” (v. 30) is the God who sometimes stirs up the
oceans in our lives. It is God who “stirred up a tempest” (v. 25)
that caused the sailors to melt with fear and reel and stagger (vv.
26,27). Then “they cried out to the Lord . . . and he brought them
out of their distress” (v. 28). The God who stirs the seas wants us
to turn to Him for help.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
