Life is filled with unexpected storms that take you by surprise.
In these storms of life, it’s easy to feel helpless, exhausted, afraid . . . and alone. We can feel like victims to circumstances out of our control. Beloved author Sally Clarkson understands deeply. Through almost seven decades of life, she has found herself tossed about in overwhelming life storms through many different seasons. In Help, I’m Drowning, Sally identifies the challenges that took her by surprise and then leads you to the wisdom she gathered from her experiences. Finding grace to walk through the darkness and hope to make it through will give you the comfort and encouragement you need in knowing you are not alone. Though there are no easy, formulaic answers that apply to every situation, Sally leads us to the One who is with us and will see us through. Sally found the anchors that held her steady in the midst of every storm, and she wants to help you find your anchors too. She invites you into her own personal story of anchoring well, and then–with honesty, grit, and her trademark wisdom–she will help you heal and move forward with courage and strength.

Guest Post From Sally Clarkson
Staying Afloat in Life’s Storms
Often, I feel overwhelmed by the continuous barrage of life’s storms. I didn’t know the difficulties of marriage, long days of motherhood and the darkness of lonely times would be so challenging.
Storms of life made me feel like I was drowning, gasping for air. Through many seasons, I’ve come to realize that we are not meant to go through life alone. The good news is: we have a loving God who will never leave nor forsake us, who ultimately serves as our lifeline.
Scripture tells us that God is an “Ever-present help in our time of need.” God walks with us through the dark times and He is always there offering a gentle and loving hand. God has been with me through every unknown season in my life. The closer I have drawn to Him, the more I find comfort and encouragement.
When we are armed and prepared with the knowledge that Christ joins us in our life-storms, we have equipped ourselves to expect and endure the chaos and we have practiced ways of staying strong, then we can face life-storms with hope and grace.
Discover that hope is more than a feeling; it is a commitment to hold fast to what Scripture reminds us is true about God. Remember that you are never alone, and it is okay to be weary at times but hold tight to hope.
