Every now and then the godless among us are confronted with a situation in which they can see that their future is not in their own hands. They are confronted by Someone bigger, who they generally choose to ignore.
That Someone (God) wants to have a relationship with them, but He is unable to have it with them because they are imperfect and He is perfect. The good news (Gospel) is that Jesus died for their imperfections. If they will just believe that He died for them then they are saved from eternal separation from Him.
Then when the storms of life come along they will know that He is with them no matter what happens. Blessed assurance!
