You may have heard me say this before, but
my very favorite photos are sunsets, and sunrises after a stormy night.
Isn’t it true, that we sometimes complain about the storms in our lives?
It’s also true, that without the storms, we wouldn’t have the beautiful sky to view afterwards.
Thank You Lord, for being with us before, during and after the storm–and for helping me to see the beauty. I love how I can look at a beautiful cloud formation, and know it was from You…and then look again in a moment or two…and it’s gone…or at least different than when I first saw it. It’s like You created it just for me to see…at that precise moment…
It’s like that quote from Max Lucado, “…Like it? I did it just for you!”
It’s moments like these I feel so blessed–so aware of You, right here beside me… always the same. Never changing…thank You for that Lord.
There’s a saying I’ve adopted, from the late B.G. Nevitt–
B. G. was known to say, “The Bible says ‘It came to pass…’
It didn’t come to stay.”
It’s another of God’s truths to hold on to…especially when things are changing so fast around us.
I hope you’ll remember that, the next time a storm enters your life. Feel free to share a time when God was unmistakenly right beside you in your storm. And know I’ll be praying for you.
