I wrote this blog a few years back. Today, as I sift through the emotions of my heart I remember this blog and I reflect on Romans 5:1-5. (Take a moment to read as there is the promise of peace, hope, and grace) I am in the middle of a rather large storm, feeling like I am in the eye of the storm and yet it's been said that the eye is where there is a calm. I have the blessing of peace, hope, and grace. Please keep our family in your prayers and we walk through this storm in our lives.
Bring on the storm
I was chatting with a friend today about how we handle the storms in our lives. I asked....."do you ever feel honored to be in the storm?" Kind of a strange question but really think about this.
God thinks so much about you to place you where you are at. He chose you, or me for that season, that storm. He believes in you, your strengths, your gifts, and your ability to reach out to him and be brought into closer proximity to HIM. He is building me up for his work, and he chose me. I am honored and flattered.
I have had a few storms this week. And sometimes when you are already down, and your sail is flailing in the wind, a situation comes along and rips what sail you have left, only to be left with the promise of God's grip. He gets me, and he gets you. I get that so much that I smile in the midst of a storm, and also cry too. Today was much crying, but what a testament to God's belief in me that I can get through this storm without a sail.
Blessings to all who read this.
