The Storms

The heavens declare the glory of God; and
the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. Psalm 19:1.

What better way than to have a beautiful rainbow in the sky.

Awaken around 4 a.m. with severe storms, lots of lightning and thunder, heavy rain and lots of wind you wonder what is going on outside. You get up to see and then all of a sudden you are sitting in the dark. The power has just gone off. We are sitting here just listening to the storms outside and I am reminder of a song I just heard tonight, "The Anchor Holds", talking about the storms of life. The anchor holds in spite of the storms. We can always turn to the anchor we have in Christ. When it gets quiet outside and you can't see anything, only the flicker of a candle for light inside and the lightning outside it gives you plenty of time to think. After all, what else can you do. We can stand in the doorway of our home and look out into the darkness and watch the storms pass by. Sometimes we are standing in the doorway of life watching the storms of our life go by. They can be severe at times, just like the storms we are having outside now, but if we put our faith and trust in the Lord, He will guide us thru. After all the storms, then we have a rainbow in the sky. What a beautiful sight.
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day,
