When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
Its rainy season in SW Florida and along with the daily showers comes the thunder and lightning. Yesterday, Jack Jack was especially freaked out. He came bolting out of our bedroom when Bobby opened the door and I heard Bobby say to him, “You still scared?” And the answer was YES! Yes, Jack Jack is totally freaked out in the storms. He shivers and shakes and cries until the storm stops.
Now, Jack has never been hurt during a storm, in fact, for the last two years, he’s been totally babied and comforted. We wrap him up in blankets, hold him and love on him, but each time that thunder cracks, he acts like he’s been hit. Nothing bad has ever happened to him, he’s always been comforted, yet when the storms come, he freaks.
I used to be a lot like Jack Jack. I was fine during the sunny days of life, but as soon as the storm hit, I freaked. And I quivered and cried and made my life worse than it really was.
But then I let God into my life. I surrendered my fears and my failures to him and when a storm came, God would comfort me and hold me and let me know that he was with me. And I stopped being afraid.
Are you like Jack Jack? Do you let the storms of life freak you out?
God wants to bring comfort to you in the midst of your storm. Will you let him?
Father, thank you for healing me, from the inside out. I know that the peace that I have comes from you. Thank you for bringing me comfort. Thank you for your love that never ends. And thank you for never letting go of me … even when I felt like I was drowning.
I love you Jesus!
In your name I pray,
God’s Blessings Upon You!
The Choices You Make Today …
Will Affect Your Tomorrow!
