Summary: Life is not a bed of roses.
Storms will come. Everyone has their own definition of what they are going through. You may say you are going through fire,or many waters. No matter how you define your challenge allow me to call it the storm. According to the Webster dictionary a storm is a a violent disturbance of the atmosphere with strong winds and usually rain, thunder, lightning, or snow. Allow me to dwell on the part of violent disturbances of the atmosphere. Iam speaking about that disturbance in your life, home, career, social circle and spiritual life. The moment or season when things are not the way they are expected to be. It is easy for a human being to question and wonder what is happening in such scenarios. But through it all I learned that the storms will come. Yes you love the lord with all your heart! Yes you are faithful serving in your capacity according to the gifts and callings. Yes you are prayerful holyghost filled and faithful giver and tithe. Yes we are going to Heaven and we are loved by the lord. But storms will come. Storms will come. Let us not live in denial that because we are born again every thing will be a smooth sailing. Why am I insisting on this because we waste so much time asking why when the storms come instead of being prepared.
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Understanding that storms will come and that it's not uncommon. Whatever storm you are going through know today that you are not the first neither will you be the last. Yes storms will come but God is faithful He wouldn't let you be tossed and tested beyond what you can bear. Quit that pity party and declare today that you are well able.
Through it all the greatest joy of a believer is knowing and understanding with high surety that they are not alone. We have the promises of a loving father and holding dear to the promises gives us strength to endure and overcome.
