After a Storm Comes a Calm…
I’m not sure what storm you’re facing.
I’m not sure when another will come.
I’m not sure if the end is near.
I’m not sure how it will be resolved.
I’m not sure why this storm is yours.
I’m not sure who’s in the eye with you.
I’m not sure how long you’ve been in its midst.
I’m not sure what lesson is being taught.
I’m not sure why HE allowed it to happen.
But He did.
At times, I’m as unsure, as uncertain as you.
I struggle to understand why a storm is mine.
I struggle to understand what I am to learn.
I struggle to believe some day it will end.
I struggle to believe it is not a punishment.
I struggle to think any good can come out.
I struggle to think a storm could be profitable.
I must, however…
…choose to believe He loves me.
…choose to believe He has only my best interest at heart.
…choose to believe the truth of His mouth.
…choose to believe the power of His hand.
…choose to believe He can calm the storm.
…choose to believe He WILL calm the storm.
May we claim this verse together:
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. ~ Mark 4:39 (emphasis mine)
What lessons have you learned/are you learning in the midst of a storm?
How did you struggle to wrap your mind around what was happening?
What did you choose to believe?
How did you choose to respond?
YOUR testimony is s testament to His faithfulness while encouraging the broken, discouraged, hurt and disillusioned.
So, what are you able to share that glorifies Him while benefiting a fellow believer?
Share it. Comment it.
