Take cover.....evacuate.....a Storm is Coming!!!



I am no meteorologist but I do have to admit I have always loved and found storms very intriguing. It can go from the nicest prettiest day and begins to get cloudy and all of the sudden you realize it is much more serious than you first thought.Have you ever watched a storm brew, the clouds get dark, the wind gets stronger and then it gains more and more strength and before you know it.....you are in the middle and it is POURING DOWN RAIN ON YOU!!They are accompanied by lightning and thunder most often.....which lightening can do much damage alone.....causing things to catch fire and be burned. Or often death if is were to strike a human and not a structure.And Storms come in all shapes and sizes......some small and skinny.....in a field all alone. Not to much damage and may have not been on the ground for long.Or others can be huge and fierce and headed straight for you in your home and all you can do is hold on and take cover!! Not knowing what the next minutes may hold in your life.If you were in a hurricane, it would be impossible to stand on the beach with out getting washed away, in fact when you saw the waves you would really try your hardest to run to safety. But then the flood waters would set in from too much rain.....and the waters could rise and do so much damage.Then when all the clouds pass and the rains stop......you see daylight and you come out to see the damage. The destruction takes your breath away, you don't even know where to begin. Your emotions are running wild and overwhelming..... Seems like every road you try to travel on leads to no where.....and there is no way out of town?








The flood waters rise higher and no matter how hard you try, you cannot escape the damage.

You try to lean on each other for support.....it is some what comforting. But there still something missing.....



Some things seem virtually impossible to move or get out of your mind!And if you have ever been in a fire.....and burned......well those are literally scars to remind you daily..... That although the flames are gone......now you are burned and hurt very badly!


What if this storm and this fire.....was in your life and in your heart and body not just something you see and hear about on TV.....


So what do you do where do you go......but to your knees.......there is a man one and only who died on a cross made from a tree his Father created and on that cross he died and he bled so that you would have life more abundantly. His Love for you will comfort you through any storm.....and even if the pain from the rain is pouring down and it seems as if the flood waters are rising...

And when the bravest of the Brave feel that all is lost and there is NO HOPE......He has promised us Hope if we turn to him and trust in Him.Then you will wake up to the sunrise.....and be thankful for the day and each day He gives you!! Because after every storm the sun must rise again. And even those who have Faith as small as a mustard seed.....he will honor that. And He loves you too!!






So....how long has it been since you read the REAL BOOK of LOVE.....and found a scripture in His word that has the bandage that is just the right size and shape for the Hurt and suffering you have occurred in this storm.Because you never know when there will be another storm.....and if you stay on your knees daily, draw closer to Him.....He will be there to guide you through your next storm..... And He can be your Best Friend to Hold the Umbrella to protect you from Harm!! Do you Know Him? Message me if you don't know Him and you really need to seek some refuge from your storm of life.....
