Weathering Life’s Storms: Get Your Spirit in Shape


When Jesus invited Peter to step out of a boat and walk with him on water, he was asking Peter to trust him, even in the midst of a storm (Matthew 14:22-36).

You and I experience storms in life as well: times when we’re afraid, when those we love get hurt, and when we are worried about family and friends.

In this conversation, United Methodist pastor Myriam Cortes of Iglesia Metodista Unida Ebenezer in Nashville, Tennessee, candidly shares about a year of storms she endured. One was on a national level in the United States. Another affected the church she serves. The third was Hurricane Maria, a literal storm that caused her to worry about her family in Puerto Rico for weeks. Pastor Myriam shares the struggles and how her faith strengthened her in the midst of the storm.
