*This weekly newsletter will share about the Bible Breakdown podcast, things about RLC, and my favorite things from around the web. My prayer is it will help you know God better.

Hello friends. Happy Saturday!

🎙️ Behind the Breakdown Recap

I hope the month of June has been good for you. The Lord is faithful either way. This week was a great week of reading God's Word together and reading the devotions on the Bible Breakdown Facebook group. If you don't go there every morning... you should.

🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>

📚 Scripture. 💪

(2 Thessalonians 1:7) NLT  “God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels.”

Observation: The Apostle Paul is telling the church of an unlikely place to find the peace and rest of God. Sometimes, the best place to find the peace of God is right in the middle of a storm. When I was a teenager, I lived not far from the coast. Every hurricane season, we watched the weather. While living there, we went through a few hurricanes, and I was always amazed a the “eye of the storm.” The eye is the storm's center; this small space would have an almost eerie calm. While all the area around us would have damaging winds and torrential rain, the eye was a place of calm and rest. Many times, this is what the joy of the Lord looks like. Joy is not an emotion but a settled confidence that the Lord is in control. When we understand the joy of the Lord, we can have that settled calm right in the middle of the raging storms of life. 

Application: Look for God in every storm. 

Prayer: Thank You for never leaving us.
