There is a story of about a sea captain who in his retirement skippered a boat taking day-trippers to Shetland Islands .

On one trip, the boat was full of young people. They laughed at the old captain when they saw him say a prayer before sailing out, because the day was fine and the sea was calm.

However they weren’t long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up and the boat began to pitch violently. The terrified passengers came to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer.

But he replied, “I say my prayers when it’s calm. When it’s rough I attend to my ship.”

Here is a lesson for us…….

If we cannot seek God in quiet moments of our lives; we are not likely to find him when trouble strikes. We are more likely to panic.

But if we have learnt to seek him and trust him in quiet moments, then most certainly we will find him when the going gets rough

    We all remember God during Bad times, but never in Good times. There is a saying that ‘If we remember in good times also then bad times will not fall’
