Remember after the last storm?
We couldn’t believe
the air became so crisp and clear …
Remember how we marveled
at the rainbow
that appeared like magic
out of thin air?
and the sun that rose up more radiantly
than we’d ever seen?
I love how lightning blazes paths of fierce beauty
in the darkness.
I love when the wind howls songs of freedom
in the night.
I love how God is unafraid to cause a scene,
roaring through limitations
like the pounding rain,
dousing everyone He touches with grace,
willing to heal the atmosphere
at all costs.
Lord give us the grace to see Your beauty in the storms of our lives. Help us to realize Your healing presence is always with us, no matter what we’re going through. Give us the gift of pure faith to believe in all the good you are doing through the painful times and challenges we experience. Help us to persevere in trust until we can realize the big picture of the marvelous plans You’ve had for us all along, which You’ve been cultivating through the good and heartbreaking times of our lives. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
