As we drove through the wind and rain of Hurricane Michael on Thursday, it seemed so similar to our spiritual walk.
Oftentimes we are so engrossed with our struggles that we don’t take into account how much worse it could be if we were in a different place, either spiritually or physically.
Or we forget that Jesus and his angels have (and are) protecting us from dangers and toils that would sabotage our progress. Instead, we are cushioned by friends and family lifting us in prayer whether or not we realize that at the time.
The Lord is faithful, again, and provides where there is a need–even though at times we wish He provided something very different. So, I find myself thankful for the wind and rain. For this new journey amidst the challenges.
He is with us even through the storm.
