I love a good storm. There is something that is just exciting about thunder rolling around outside that I just can not beat. Maybe it is the fact that growing up we had an old tin roof and there was nothing better sounding to me then the sound of the rain hitting it. It’s funny really that I can find such beauty in storms that can knock out our power, send my children running to my arms and can even strike a bit of fear into other adults who are around me. But, I find comfort being safely in my home just gazing out of the window until the storm passes.
The storms of life however can be somewhat of a different story. You know those storms that kind of come up out of no where. The ones that cause us to mimic our children and run to God for comfort. Yep, those storms I am not always a fan of.
Recently, I was given the privilege to read a book called “ I Like Storms” by Angela Holland. This book is meant to be used as a devotional study and as you are reading it you quickly understand why. Each entry takes you into a specif time in a young family’s life when they had to weather a life storm and the writer shares the wisdom that God provided her family along the way. While reading this devotional book you begin to fall in love with this family. Angela’s thoughts cause you to walk away deep in thoughts of and also cause you to begin to recognize how God has done the same acts in your own life.
Life is full of many storms, those caused by nature and those that are part of our own spiritual growth. We may not be able to control when either storm comes in. What we can control are our thoughts and where we put our trust. After all after ever storm there is a beautiful rainbow.
