They call it Stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad. Wednesday's worse, and Thursday's also sad. - Are you there?

There's a lot going on right now, and "storms" threaten from every direction. This weekend as we begin a brand new series, come gather in for a "Blues Club" vibe - and leave with hope renewed in the One who shows up in the storm.

Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them.

MONDAY: Mark 4:35-41
Invite the Holy Spirit to bring to mind the “storms” of your life – any anxieties or situations where you’re not fully resting in God. Ask for the Holy Spirit’s perspective in them.

TUESDAY: Mark 6:30-44
Sometimes storms can look like the needs of others, when all we want to do is get some rest. Yet Jesus had compassion on others and relied on the provision of his Father. Who are the crowds in your life? How could you have compassion on them?

WEDNESDAY: Mark 6:45-56
Verses 45 and 52 link this account to yesterday’s reading. What lesson does Mark and the Holy Spirit have for you by doing that?

THURSDAY: Lamentations 3:19-27
The author’s soul was downcast, so what did the author do in verse 21? Meditate on verses 22-26. Set an alarm for today and revisit these promises.

FRIDAY: James 1:2-8
Are you facing any trials or testing of your faith? How could you reframe it as pure joy? Ask God for wisdom and God’s perspective for whatever challenges you are currently facing.

SATURDAY: Acts 16:16-34
What were Paul and Silas’ solution to their imprisonment, and what was the result? Think back to the storms or situations causing anxiety we looked at on Monday; how could you choose to worship God in them?

SUNDAY: Matthew 7:24-27
What insights from this week will you choose to put into practice? Journal about them.
