Sea Captain who in his retirement skippered a boat taking day-trippers to Islands.
On one trip, the boat was full of young people.
They laughed at the old captain when they saw him *say a prayer* before sailing out, because the day was fine and the sea was calm.
However, they weren’t long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up and the boat began to roll & pitch violently.
The terrified passengers came to the captain and *asked him to join them in prayer.*
But he replied, *”I say my prayers when it’s calm. When it’s rough I attend to my ship.”*
*Here is a lesson for us…*
If we cannot *seek God* in quiet moments of our lives; we are not likely to find him when trouble strikes.
We are more likely to panic.
But if we have *learnt to seek him and trust him in quiet moments, then most certainly we will find him when the going gets rough.*
