Dec 11 – Real Test of Faith

“It was a real test of my faith.” Those are the words of George Reynolds after a terrifying 15 terrifying hours at sea when their boat capsized in the chilly waters off the Massachusetts coast. Reynolds and Fred Schaeffer spent a night sitting on a plank over two hulls of their trimaran in high seas. They prayed for strength and calm seas, sang gospel songs and quoted scripture verses, until they were rescued. . These men knew where to call for help. Sadly, many, when facing the storms of life, do not know where to turn. David the Psalmist wrote of such experiences with the words ”They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way. They found no city to dwell in. hungry and thirsty. Their soul fainted in them. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses.”
