In the Midst of a Storm

This picture brings back a special memory to me of one single day many years ago while on vacation with our children. We all wanted to be at the beach, but we only had a certain time frame to do so and a storm was closing in quickly. All I did was pray that the Lord would change it’s direction. That storm made it’s way up to the edge of the parking lot in front of the hotel, divided, went around us and eventually came back together over the water; all the while we were enjoying sunshine beating down on us on the beach behind the hotel!

This picture also reminds me of life’s storms. Sometimes we can see them coming, sometimes not. But even when the thunder rolls and the lightning strikes, we can be sure that God is with us. Even in the midst of our storms, we stand in the SON shine of His love and care. God will either calm our storm or He’ll take us through them. He will never forsake us or leave us.

Is a storm coming your way, or are you in one right now? Claim this promise and trust Him.

“And the Lord, He it is that does go before you; He will be with you, He will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Deut. 31:8

You are in good hands!
