Life is always subject to out-of-the-blue sudden or even forecasted impending trials. This summer has been awfully quiet till now and suddenly we’re looking at a storm that can and likely will alter the lives of many people.
I know apprehension is in the air. It’s that feeling or fear that something bad or unpleasant will happen and by all rights that is true in this case. It’s just a simple matter of where this storm comes ashore that will determine who and what will change their lives.
In the past I’ve been filled with anxiety over storms this size possibly coming our way. Anyone that knows me, knows of the storms I’ve seen and many of them went through the same ones. I don’t take lightly the enormity of the situation we’re facing today. Tomorrow things will go downhill, weather-wise, but I’m strangely different in my thinking about this happening. Why, I do know.
As I’ve grown older and gone through things of one nature or another I have found faith in God has grown inside of me and I’ve grown to trust Him more for His protection. Still, I’m sure I will be moved by the power of such an event, but God is my source, my power, my peace. He has given me that because he is my Father as he is yours if this is were you are.
If you’re not, today is the day to make that determination. He will make your life much more durable against the trials that come your way. I can’t make anyone do anything. I’m not a high pressure sales person. I only offer you what I have as being available for the price of saying I believe.
Hey, this isn’t some “get saved now or go to hell” speech. I’m over that. I was given this opportunity not to scare you away from your past, but to show you the future of what can and will be.
The work of righteousness will be peace; the service of righteousness will be quiet confidence forever. Isaiah 32:17
