The Wind is Picking Up
It is amazing how you can truly find peace in the middle of the storm. He is doing a new thing. I'm done fighting it. I'm surrendered. The Lord's Will be done, not mine.
How do you fight a storm? How do you fight something that you have no control over? You don't. You ride it out. You hunker down and pray that God will save you and your loved ones. You release them into His hands and pray His Will for them. He fights it. He calms it. There is hope.
I look back and thank the Lord that He gave me the strength to get through each day. Even today, not one, but two friends showed up and offered to give me a break. Can you believe it? That shows how God loves to shower us with grace and mercy. I was able to go on a much needed date with my hubby.
This new journey, it's not quite so frightening. I know Jesus is holding my hand, guiding my boat. He will get me safely to the other shore.
If you are going through a trial, I pray that you will trust the Lord with all your heart and praise Him in the middle of your painful storm. Sometimes your heart breaks over and over and over, yet, He is there, picking up those shattered pieces and waiting for the right time to start putting them together again.
