Withstanding The Toughest Storms

There have been many intense and deadly storms in the United States in the twenty-first century—maybe none more horrific than Hurricane Katrina in 2005: “Hurricane Katrina is arguably the most notorious storm of the 21st century. The storm made landfall as a Category 5 near Miami before striking Louisiana as a Category 3 storm. Katrina was the third deadliest, and costliest hurricane in US history with more than 1,200 deaths and $108 billion in damage” (Lydia Ramsey Pflanzer, “15 of the Deadliest, Most Destructive American Hurricanes in History,” Insider, October 4, 2015, https://www.businessinsider.com/worst-storms-in-history-2015-10). This life provides plenty of storms that will test our mettle. If our faith is built upon the rock of Christ, our lives will be able to withstand even the greatest of calamities.
