Ron Mehl shares a story about a woman who was once caught in a frightening storm as she sailed across the Atlantic Ocean. This lady kept all the little children on board from panicking by telling Bible stories. After finally reaching the dock safely, the ship’s captain approached the woman, whom he had observed in the midst of the storm.
“How were you able to maintain your calm when everyone feared the ship would sink in this storm?” the captain asked. As she looked up, he noted the same quiet peace in her eyes that she had maintained throughout the journey.
“I have two daughters,” explained the Christian woman. “One of them lives in New York. The other lives in heaven. I knew I would see one or the other of my daughters in a few hours. And it really didn’t matter to me which one.”
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 4:7.
