Have you ever sat outside in a thunderstorm?
They can be beautiful.
The thunder. The lightning. The sky.
It’s like a light show from heaven.
At the same time – there are certain dangers in storms.
I honestly love rainy & stormy weather. I really do.
But, in the midst of it all, I always enjoy having a safe place to ride out the storms. Especially the dangerous ones…
Life is the same way…
It can be beautiful.
It’s a story from heaven.
At the same time – there are dangers in this life.
And, in the midst of it all, He is my refuge & my home.
When life’s waves threaten to crush me and wash me away, I know my hope is in Him to keep me safe in the midst of it all.
And, in that, I find beauty once again.
“In that day the Branch of the Lord will be beautiful & glorious…Over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge & hiding place from the storm & rain.”
– Isaiah 4:2,5-6
