There's a Christian song that talks about the "eye of the storm" where God gives us shelter. I've seen a sample of that sheltering today.
In my life I've dealt with trouble with mixed results at my own composure. When it's someone else going through the motions of wrestling with their circumstances, you've just got to listen to them and silently give the prayers of intention of help over to God, who is the only one who can resolve those circumstances of others, through God's using us as His instruments and through the rest of the world.
In the storm one is lost in the rationalization of why you should not be grateful. It's just people around you acting like they've always acted but once in a while it seems personal. Yes life isn't "fair" if you define the fairness on our personal perspective. But trusting in God's plan and being grateful for things is like turning a light switch on to see the wisdom.
In the eye of the storm, God grants us peace in His graceful presence because we put our faith in Him. One can only hold one thought full in the mind at a time. Choose to take a moment to let the emotions pass. Choose to take a moment to be grateful in spite of circumstance. Suddenly the world seems much brighter, much calmer, more perfectly fitting into God's mysterious plan.
