Stormy Weather

It's been storming and the floods covered some roads. The sky has been dark and clouds roll ominously. Some have watched the skies for the telltale signs of something worse. After only a couple of days, most of us are tired of it and wishing for sunshine and clear blues skies. Oh beloved, storms come in so many ways - sickness, sorrow, depression, rejection, fear, heartbreak, temptation and more. Just as the power goes off during many storms, we find ourselves powerless during hard times. But oh beloved, there is One Who is the Captain of our Way, the Keeper of our Lives and the Power in our powelessness. Call out His Name! Speak out His Word! He loves you and He's on your side and nothing else really matters and no storm will overtake us when we trust in Him! Psalm 31:21 Praise be to the LORD,for he showed me the wonders of his love when I was in a city under siege. Psalm 62:7 My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. Deuteronomy 4:7 Deuteronomy 4:7 For what great nation has a god as near to them as the LORD our God is near to us whenever we call on him? Psalm 91:15 Psalm 91:15 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.
