Today I am thankful for storms, not the weather kind of storms but the storms in life... when things don't go the way you think/ expect them to go. Why am I thankful for storm you may ask?! It's not necessarily the storm itself I'm thankful for but the work that God has done in and through those storms that I am thankful for! When you're in the middle of a storm in your life it is hard to see how/what God could possible be doing in that moment. When the winds stop blowing and you are able to step back and allow yourself to breath is when you start seeing those small blessings throughout that storm. Then after the sky clears up more and the storm has subsided for the most part you are able to see how God  was truly in the middle of the storm with you all along holding you. Just like after a real storm things may appear messy and out of place at first, however in some areas the grass might seem a little bit greener. At the end of the day you are more able to look at your life with thanksgiving and see all the blessings in your life that God has given you! So if you are going through a storm right now, hold tight to the maker and know that he's got your back & that he won't bring you to anything you can't get through with his strength.


God uses storms in our lives to cause us and those around us to cry out to him. All pretense is gone and we throw ourselves as the mercy of our only source of hope. And when we cry out to him, he bends down to listen. ~ Nancy Guthrie

We can become God chasers- recognizing that, if we listen, in the midst of the most violent storm we can detect the still, small voice of God, calling us to greater faith in him. ~ Nancy Guthrie

He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. Psalm 107:29
