Storms may come and storms may go

But the Word of God remains firmly fixed. . .

(sunset Henderson St Park, Fl / Julie Cook / 2015)

When life becomes stressful. . .
When there is an unexpected turn of events. . .
When you feel overwhelmed. . .
When nothing seems to go your way. . .
When the frustrations mound. . .
When all manner of bad, wrong or evil is said to or about you. . .
When time seems to be running out. . .
When your elderly father and stepmother become impossible. . .
Out of the blue you get a text message:

“Don’t Let Your Storm Steal Your Faith—
“And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?
How is it that ye have no faith?”
(Mark 4:40)
The one thing we can be assured of is that storms will come.
It’s how we act and react to these storms that test our faith.
There is nothing we can do to stop the storms.
Some come with a warning, others don’t.
But through it all, our actions demonstrate our faith level.
It’s not the storm, but our actions in the storm that the Lord looks at.
Though the storms may come, we can still stand in faith as we are covered
under the umbrella of Christ Jesus!
So for Today “Don’t Let Your Storm Steal Your Faith”

    Hey Julie

    Well, God has his hand in things for sure. I was reading James when I first read this post, or had just finished reading in it I guess, wasn’t reading two things at once.

    My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

    Seemed to be perfect in that we should remember that God’s purpose is perfect for us, even when we don’t like it very much.

    Indeed, ‘in the world you WILL have tribulation,’ storms on a regular basis, but usually the next day………………..such brightness and clarity…………and the scent of what is forgotten…………

    Good stuff you. And your pic here is stunning. Btw, how any person can see such a sun, and think that such a sight is wasted upon the created……… if termites could be impressed……..are we not much more than termites who live down under…………..
