I was sitting on my computer checking email when a storm came up. The tornado siren went off and the wind was really bad. It was really dark, green, and the trees looked like they were going to fall. It was a bit scary and I wondered if I should have been sitting in the basement. But, as soon as it came, it seemed to leave... with just about a 15 minute rain storm after the initial scare.
Sitting here, watching, thinking... it made me think of the storms of life. How things happen, and they seem to be so hard, devastating at times, scary, etc... we worry... we fret... Some storms are longer, some are shorter... but we have a loving Father who watches over us, who loves us, and who will never let anything more than we can handle come into our lives. I am so grateful for the promises of God and for His continue protection, love, grace, mercy, sweetness, light, encouragement, hope, and all that comes with being a child of the King of Kings!! May we all rest in Him, trust in Him, love Him, and keep our eyes on Him - no matter what storms come our way!
