Living on the flatlands has advantages. My favorite is to watch storms and sunrises. These first several pictures are of an oncoming storm on July 17, as we were heading out for our trip to Arkansas. I will apologize right now about my lack of photography skills, so these will have to do. They may show us riding down the road, or it's night time, therefore the photos are grainy. Whatever the case, I use what I have and I hate missing out on come really cool sky shows only God can create.
Depending on the storm, it can exhilarate you or scare the snot out of you. Being in the flatlands brings on wind I've never experienced before in my life. You can see all the lightning strikes hitting the ground. Rain barreling down in the distance tells you exactly where it's at.
Unlike the storms of life, we can see the storms coming at us. Life storms, not so much. They can broad side you when you aren't looking and knock you down for a time, only to have it start raining. Sometimes life feels like a losing battle, when all you seem to do is fight with it.
The other night, another storm rolled in, similar to the one above, only it was evening
Some storms in our life can seem so dark, we wonder if we'll ever see the light of day ever again. We get buried in debt, our heart gets broken, we lose someone close to us, whatever the situation, sometimes it feels like we can never get out of our situations.
Even in our darkest hour, there is One who knows what you are going through. There is One who is in control of these storms. He has a plan for your life. Look up and see the wonder!
There is only one thing that can help you to see the light, because He is the Light! Jesus is the way, the truth and the light. No one comes to the Father in Heaven except through the Son, Jesus Christ.
Each day is a new day. We all have 24 hours to use wisely. Make good choices. Love each other. Help one another. Love God first.
Each day is a gift. How will you use it?
