Monday Motivation: The Storm…

Hey guys,

Short post today:

Today was a gloomy, damp rainy day here in my city a which is weird for this time of year. We are usually neck deep in snow. It was just one of those blah days which totally reflected my mood. There’s been so much happening to me and people I love these past weeks. I lost a friend to domestic violence/ murder last week (RIP Holly).

Another friend is dealing with devastating health news and another is in the middle of an emotional breakdown. The storm today is reminiscent of the storm happening around me, and it doesn’t feel good.  As I write this, its still raining and I found myself asking God figuratively and literally, “When is this storm going to end?”

God reminded me of the story  of Noah and the ark, and after the rains had ended, He sent a reminder of hope through a rainbow.
Now how is a rainbow formed? In order for a rainbow to become visible, the Sun must shine through! This story caused me to look at my figurative storms the same way. If your personal storms are going to end, you have to let the SON ( Jesus) shine through.

There is nothing that you can do to make a rain storm stop. It has to run its course.But after the storm, the sun must shine again. It might not be right away, but it will shine again!  In the storms of life, the SON (Jesus) will shine through for you. It may not come in the way you seem, but know someway , somehow He is working on sending you that rainbow. Don’t lose hope !We often try everything in our power to get the storm to stop which always leaves us disappointed because like I said before a storm has to run its course. As we go through the storm we often overlook the lesson in the storm. What is it trying to teach us? To slow down? To be prepared? To stay vigilant? To seek help? We can’t weather the storms of life by ourselves. Give your storms to the one who can see you through .  God is always in control and God will see you through.

It may not look like you are going get through your situation. Your journey may seem long, dark and never-ending. But remember, you are on your journey for a reason. You may not understand the reason, but trust your journey. Take heart in the fact that there is someone greater than you working on your behalf! There is always light at the end of tunnel, despite how long your tunnel may be!

  • “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17)

  • He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.” (Isaiah 40:29)

Tell your storm to pass!!! Its time for the SON to shine!!!! This song is truly my testimony today. Be blessed!

Even though your winds blow
I want you to know
You cause me no alarm
Cause I’m safe in his arms
Even though your rain falls
I can still make this call;
Let there be peace
Now I can say go away
I command you to move today
Because of faith I have a brand new day
The sun will shine and I will be okay
That’s what I told the storm
!

I told the storm to pass
Storm you can’t last
Go away – I command you to move today
Storm – when God speaks;
Storm – you have to cease
That’s what I told the storm!

Winds stop blowing!
Floods stop flowing!
Lightning stop flashing!
Breakers stop dashing!
Darkness go away!
Clouds move away!
That’s what I told the storm!

Death can’t shake me!
Job can’t make me!
Bills can’t break me!
Disease can’t take me!
You can’t drown me!
My God surrounds me!
That’s what I told the storm!

xoxo
