Thankfully the coast guard was able to rescue all 31 members of the fishing vessel, the Atlantic Destiny, before it sank 220 km off the southwest coast of Nova Scotia this past March. The boat sank as a result of a fire on board that knocked out the vessels power causing it to take on water. To make matters worse, all of this occurred during a storm at sea. Do you ever feel like there are so many hardships in life that you are going to be consumed? The Bible informs us that there will be hardships, storms that will occur in our lives but it has instruction in regard to the proper focus during those storms. It is not to be on the storms but on God. In the book of Isaiah, chapter 26 verse 3 it reads, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you.
