ƒ{ I started this series talking about storms

ƒ{ Today I want to continue that thought

ƒ{ How many have ever seen

"The Perfect Storm"

ƒ{ When two or more storms come together at the same time.

Read Acts 27:14-20, 44

Acts 27:14 (KJV)

But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

Acts 27:17 (KJV)

Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, strake sail, and so were driven.

ƒ{ Euroclydon = An ancient word meaning

The gathering of southeastern

And northeastern winds

ƒ{ Creating

o Typhoon

o Whirlwind

o Hurricane

ƒ{ Have you ever felt like you're in a eurocyldon?

ƒ{ It's called the Perfect Storm

ƒ{ Its out to destroy your home.

ƒ{ Many times we think in order to survive the Perfect Storm

ƒ{ We must have the Perfect Spouse
