May 6–Still Storming?–OR–Stilled Storms?

Storms hit.

Maybe these storms are the terrible and terrifying tempests that come at us–as part of the reality of living in this frail, flawed and finite world. 

Maybe they are storms that we have been caught in, as consequences of our own choices, because we refused to heed the warning signs and remove ourselves from the danger zones.

Maybe they are only storms in our perspective because someone or something is raining on our parade.

Whatever the cause of the storm or the circumstance that puts us in it or the mind-set that keeps us in it, we can be sure that God is with us. And when we truly seek our LORD’s help, we can be sure that the power of the storm is no match for the power of our God and His unfailing love.

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men. Psalm 107:28-31

Since the storms are still going to come at us–or because of us–we need to run into our Abba’s storm-stilling, compassionate and forgiving arms. 

We need to fully turn to–and trust in–our Abba’s unfailing love that is present with us even when we are right in the midst of the storms. By Abba’s unfailing love the most dangerous of storms are stilled to a whisper. The most frightening, crashing waves are hushed.

Is it still storming for you in your mind and heart? OR Have you let Abba still the storms within you? Come on, cry out to Him! Your storms will be stilled!

Let us give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and for His wonderful deeds for men!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
