Captain Russel was a strange old man on the ship.
On one trip, on a ship to full of young people to Shetland islands, people laughed at his strange act of saying a prayer before sailing out because the day was already fine, and the sea so calm!
However they weren't long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up, and the boat began to pitch violently. The terrified passengers rushed to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer now.
The Captain now smiled at them, and replied, "I say my prayers when it's calm. When it's rough I attend to my ship."
What a lesson!
Learn to seek God and trust his power in quiet moments, and you'll surely find him when the going gets rough.
