The storms in our lives...

     Hurricane Sandy ~ a.k.a. Frankenstorm 2012 ~ continues to pound the northeast portion of the United States.   Not only are they getting the brunt force winds and rains that typically come with a hurricane, the cold front that is coming down is bringing snow in some areas.  It is as if there is a clash of seasons ~ hurricanes are typically associated with the summer months.

     When we face storms in life, we don't often get an aerial view of them.  At times we wish we could stand outside of ourselves and look at what is happening, but that isn't possible either.  Nor do we always get the advance warning of a change coming, as we do when we get weather warnings.

     Lately I've been facing a lot of storms in my life ~ shifting ground, turbulent winds of change, and floods of tears.  My life line throughout everything has been my faith in what I cannot yet see... in that aerial view... and in the God whose promises I cling to in faith.

Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses.
He hushes the storm to a calm and to a gentle whisper, so that the waves of the sea are still.
Then the men are glad because of the calm, and He brings them to their desired haven.
~ Psalm 107:28-30 NIV ~

  1. Not only have you been facing storms, you have been surviving the unsurvivable and making slow and steady progress forward. Which is wonderful.
