I live in Alaska, and in my previous job I traveled all over ths state. One of the trips I took was to Shaktoolik, Alaska to recruit local elders to volunteer at the school and teach about Traditional Native values and their cultural way of life.
One morning, I was walking to see my great grandfather's house two miles from the village. Each morning I pray and listen to instructions that my Lord Jesus has for me. Well, that morning He asked me, "Look to your right and tell me what you see." I turned to my right and responded, "I see a storm." He responded to me by saying, "I'm greater than any storm (life problem) that you will ever have. All I want you to do is trust in me, and I will be with you in the middle of storms to help you."
At that time I wasn't going through any storms in my life. A few years later, we moved to Bethel, Alaska and that is when we experienced many storms in our lives, marriage, family, finances, job, etc. During each storm I cried to the Lord for help, wisdom and strength to endure and overcome each storm. I learned as long as I have trusted Him, He has never failed me and my family. I now know He will never fail us.
Praying is when I talk to Him for guidance, and when I can give Him all my problems I will receive that guidance. He also has helped, strengthened and continually guided me through His wonderful Holy word. He has brought true balance in my life, marriage, family, finances, etc. I give Him all the praise and glory He deserves.
