Acts 27 – Faith in the Storm

Paul has been sitting tight for several years in the palace at Caesarea awaiting his trial when (finally!) things start to move.  As we turn our attention to Acts 27 today, we find Paul boarding a ship and setting sail for Rome – the very thing Jesus promised him he would be doing two plus years earlier.  However, as Paul launches out on this trip, things don’t go as smoothly as one would expect.  When we’re actively walking in God’s plan, shouldn’t things move forward with no tension?  Yet Paul encounters challenging situations outside of his control.  Likewise, we often find ourselves having little to no control over situations in our lives.  What does our faith look like when these storms hit?
