Not All Storms Are In The Forecast~

Hello from a white and cold Monday morning in Missouri. Yesterday morning we woke up to the biggest snow storm of the season so far this Winter. I was caught off guard because nowhere on my little smart phone did it show snow in the forecast. That is just how it goes in Missouri.  Not all storms are in the forecast.

Much like our weather, life presents itself the same way. NOT all storms are forecasted. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball. It seems when I find myself in the middle of the storm where the sea of life is raging and strong winds threaten my security the best thing I can do is look back at all the other storms in my life when my faith held.

 My faith has held all these years that I have been walking with Jesus. Why? Because the anchor of my soul in anchored in Christ Jesus who is steadfast and sure. He has held never once failed me . He has always walked beside me holding my hand and He promises me that He will never leave me or forsake me.

So when the winds of life start to blow we only have to look to our refuge and lay hold of the hope we have in Jesus. He is the anchor that holds no matter what is in the forecast.

Hebrews 6:18-19King James Version (KJV)

The verse reminds me of the hymn "We Have An Anchor".
"We have an anchor that keeps the soul, steadfast and sure while the billows roll.
Anchored to the Rock which cannot move. Anchored firm and deep in the Savior's love"

Thank you for the reminder.

Storms on this earth can be seen. We can usually see a storm coming, and we can typically see behind the clouds to the end of that storm. Spiritual storms . . . not so much. We rarely see them coming (speaking from my experience) and it seems we can't ever see an end to them. Thank God that He is in control. He is bigger than any storm in my life or anyone's life. He never promised that there would be no storms. But He promised that if we keep our eyes on Him that He will give us peace no matter how the storms rage. That is easy to say, and hard to do. And yet in my life . . . so many things I've worried over and feared . . . my fear and worry did NOTHING to help the situation. Only when we stand humbly before our God and say "Lord, it's all up to You and I will trust You" can we find that peace that passes all understanding. He is our Strong Tower. He is our Deliverer. He is our Peace. Blessings to you today my sweet friend.
