One pastor’s wife was very afraid to take flights. Husband asks her to pray. Fear was controlling her. "Let Him know you’re afraid of flying, and God will help you." Over time, she overcame the fear.

One day, she was flying with her friend through a violent storm in a small plane. He was sweating it out while she was fast asleep. When they landed, he asked her, "How could you sleep so peacefully?" She replied, "I’ve learned to trust Him. He changed me. He has given me that kind of peace."

Sometimes God calms the storm, but most of the time He lets it rage - and calms us! Don’t be discouraged when you have to turn your fears over to God, again and again. That’s how trust is learned.
