I've been thinking a lot about storms these past few days. Some storms are genuine, undeniable storms - like illness, death, divorce, and some are more self-made, like worry, fear, and regret. Storms are much easier to wait out and press through with good friends. I was blessed to spend some time today with a very close friend of mine who helped me gain some good perspective on a particular storm I'm going through right now. Afterward, I was reminded of a plaque my mom had displayed on our kitchen window sill growing up. She and my dad know a lot about storms, and who to turn to when they hit. It said, "Sometimes the Lord calms the storm. Sometimes He lets the storm rage and calms His child." Today, through my sweet friend, He calmed His child. I am so grateful for that. Isn't it awesome to know that we are never alone?! We may not always understand, see the big picture, and life is sometimes about loss...but He goes through the storm with us AND promises to see us through. I think that's pretty awesome.
