Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings, it’s all about learning to stay calm because God is in control. First, maybe we could have more calm if we stopped complaining. There are plenty of things to complain about right now: Masks. Social distancing. The election. Schools. How your church is responding to the coronavirus. So here’s the challenge: When you feel tempted to complain, take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. Let the temptation to complain remind you to give thanks instead! Being thankful can lead to peace in the storm.
Then, Peter was one of the disciples who freaked out in the storm while Jesus was sleeping in the boat. He also denied Jesus 3 times because he was afraid for his life. Yet Peter went from a terrified young man with such little faith to a man who eventually died for his faith. It’s about growing into an unshakeable faith. And finally Shawna shares her first two reactions when she found out she’d been given a trip to Israel. The first: That’s awesome! Her second: What if the plane crashes and I leave my kids without either of their parents? It’s about dealing with our deepest fears by replacing our What if? questions with Even if statements
