Monday Motivation: The Storm is Over Now…

Hey guys!

Busy week ahead so this will be a quick post! I was listening to some Judy Garland, “Somewhere over the Rainbow” and this post completely overtook what I was going to chat with you about today! Funny how that works right?

I don’t know if there is anyone out there who can actual feel a storm  coming. I have bad knees so I can feel a tingly sensation in my knees when a storm is on the way. I also sometimes suffer with migraines and if you have ever had a migraine, you know that an incoming storm only exacerbates the pain you feel. But once that storm passes by….. wow what a relief!

Such as with the storms of life. Before a storm (aka a bump in the road of life) happens you can usually feel something brewing. Then, the onset of the storm approaches. Things get dark and winds blow and showers plummet down. Sometimes when a storm rages your plans get ruined!( anybody ever been at a cookout and get rained out?… Yeah not fun)  But then after the storm subsides, peace and calm are restored and usually a sign that everything is going to be alright pops up. ( hello rainbow!)

Ahhh… the rainbow. The best thing after a storm for me is to see a beautiful rainbow in the sky .  Biblically , the rainbow served as a covenant ( promise) God made with Noah which promised that the world would not be destroyed with water ever again. ( Genesis 9:8-17) If that isn’t an expression of grace then I don’t know what is!

For me the rainbow serves as a reminder of the promise that God made with Noah many moons ago. After Noah weathered his storm ( literally), blessings were abundant. I’ve weathered many storms in my life that God has seen me through.

Keep faith that there is a rainbow at the end of your storm! You may be in the tempest of your storm. Your storm might be causing mass destruction in your life and the lives of those around you. You might not be able to see the end of your storm, but just know that God is in the midst of your storm. You may not know how to get out the storm you are in, but let God be the captain of your ship!

Storms last only a for a moment. You may have to pick up the pieces after the storm… but look up for your rainbow is on the horizon!!

God did it for Jonah
God did it for Noah.
He’ll do it for you!

The song, “The Storm is Over Now” by Kirk Franklin is so fitting today! The lyrics and song are down below.

Have a blessed week!

It’s over now
it’s over now
i feel like i can make it
the storm is over nowIt’s over now
It’s over now
i feel like i can make it
the storm is over now

No more cloudly days
there all gone, gone away
i feel like i can make it
the storm is over now

no more cloudy days
there are gone away
i feel like i can make it
the storm is over now

If i walk alone
I’m not on my own
i feel like i can make it
the storm is over now

if i walk alone
i’m not on my own
i feel like i can make it
the storm is over now
