Let the Thunder ROLL!!!!

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.     Psalm 34:17-20

The thunder is rolling and the streets are flowing as the rain continues to pour. I could sit and listen to the rain for hours, I just love it!

I had a hard time getting up this morning because I was in awe listening to thunder roll across the sky and gently rattle my house. My kids all came running in my room as the ever growing thunder became louder and louder.

They were scared....I was calm....

I quickly told them they had nothing to be scared of and that the thunder was from God. I told them how it reminded me of His great love and Power.

I think of the power a storm really has. Houses, towns, and peoples life's have been completely destroyed at the work of thunder, lighting, wind and rain. The power of a storm can destroy anything and everything in its path and many times within seconds.

I think to the storms in our own life's. How many times are we in the darkest moment of our life and the storm is taking us under faster then we can catch our breath? I know I have often felt like I was stuck in the middle of a street and the wind and rain began poring down as hard as it possible could, and I was stuck. No matter how fast I ran for shelter, the thunder got louder and the rain heavier....I was drowning within.

Storms of any nature have extreme power. Power to wipe away our very existence or confidence in what we thought was stable.

The truth is; a storm is not stable. It is strong, powerful, and completely unpredictable.  However, God is also strong and powerful. He has the power to make the wind roar and the rain stop at His command. He also has the power to calm whatever storm is taking over your life; my life.

The thunder reminds me that God is in control and He is still here watching over me day by day. When I feel like my personnel storms are taking over, I have to let go and LET GOD! Let God have the control that only He can calm the storm.

The storm is coming.....Are you going to be scared or calm? Are you going to give God complete control?

I found this quote:

"God sometimes calms the storm; and other times, He lets the storm rage and calms the soul."
