Cape of Storms

The southernmost point of Africa was for centuries known as the “Cape of Storms”. But then, in the sixteenth century, Vasco De Gama, successfully sailed around it and found beyond the raging storms a great calm sea, and beyond that the fabled shores of India. And so they changed its name from the Cape of Storms to the Cape of Good Hope.
For most of human history death has been the cape of storms on which all hopes of life are wrecked. But for people of faith it is our cape of good hope. The Bible says: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”
Jesus told his disciples: “Trust in me, I go to prepare a place for you.” He turned their cape of storms into a cape of good hope, and he still does for everyone who has faith.
