LSOF: The Faith Storm

Photobucket

A rainbow that appeared in the sky after precious time with God:)

I am standing here at the wall of Lake Monroe. Above me ominous clouds seem echo visually over the entire horizon.
Sweet drops of rain fall over me, and on this page.
The water is so calm, barely rippling…
My friend showed me this morning a verse she is learning in her bible study, ” The Truth Project”.

Romans 1:20
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

God’s attributes can clearly be seen if we look hard enough.

The Lord brought to my heart on the drive here the hurricanes that we’ve had here in FL in the past.

I remember standing outside as the winds became more severe. The rain pelted everything around, and the trees held onto their roots for dear life…

He showed me that our faith in Him is just like being inside a hurricane.

The roughness of the winds are just really if you think about it the force of God’s blessing and will over our lives.
Something else that my friend and I discussed was that you don’t know what it is like to experience something good or something bad, until you experience it.

It is just so when it comes to walking through God’s will.

Thing after thing can happen, and make you smile or bring you straight to your knees, and then…
things seem too still for comfort. The sunshines on you, and blue skies are clearly above, but
you don’t feel like you are really in God’s will…because nothing is happening.

It’s what is called being inside the eye of God’s will.

This is the part where He looks down from heaven and sees that in the stillness, if we will still believe.

This is the place our souls wait for the Lord to take us into another direction of wind.

I am in that place right now. But something that made me cry when He spoke it to my heart.
The eye isn’t the only place we have blue skies, that they are all around us through the storm,
He is always in control.

To think that God even decided the shapes the clouds turn every moment.

The wind blows gently on me…its God’s gentle spirit.
Reminding me He is love…and He is still in everything.

This one part of Hebrews 3:12 really struck me today.

See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.

I look out at all this, and think to myself…How can I think for one second that God couldn’t handle my little world?

I saw the movie, ” Amelia” today. I wanted to watch a movie that was going to clearly reflect God.

Maybe Amelia didn’t make it across the ocean, but I think her heart met with God clear before she ever took flight that day, and was already prepared to meet Him.

I want to have a faith that reaches to the skies.

Of course it would take more that saying it…for it to happen.

Right this moment, as I hear the rumble of the airplane behind me…I say…

I’ll believe you Lord, in even this.


Blessings,
Angie
