The Storm

the storm

The earth rumbles all around as the sky grows dark. 

I quietly listen as the sounds of a coming storm grows louder.

Lightening flashes. Cracks of thunder.

The rain washes over the earth purifying, cleansing and nourishing as it pours down.

I raise my hands in praise knowing that I too am purified, cleansed and made new by life's storms.

I stand in the midst of the raging storm and choose to worship.

I know I am safe.

He, the One who created (or allowed) the storm, is faithful.


Psalm 107:28-31 “Yet when they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, the Lord brought them out of their distress. He calmed the storm and its waves quieted down. So they rejoiced that the waves became quiet, and he led them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his gracious love and for his awesome deeds on behalf of mankind.”

Psalm 89:8 “Lord God All-Powerful, there is no one like you. You are strong, Lord, and always faithful.”


Leave me some joy...
