I got caught up in a storm once more again today. It surrounded me and debris flew quickly passed my car. Raindrops hit my windshield hard. Everything ahead of me was barely visible.
I kept wondering to myself if I just tried changing directions to the path of my destination that perhaps it might lead me out of the storm. Every road I tried captured the same scene.
Fifteen minutes after driving through the flooding roads, the wind blowing my car side to side, and the rain just almost piercing my windshield, the blue sky was finally above me.
This has been my reality the last few months. I have realized that I have to come accept that it is what it is. I am responsible for taking on this season, regardless of what I have to take on.
I thought of ” The Wizard of Oz”- and when Dorothy saw people she knew pass by her window. I can relate to this in a similar context only that it is scene by scene that has happened pass by over and over, and not outside my window, but maybe happening 5 ft from me.
It really has been hard to realize I can’t do anything, but go through it all. In the past I’ve been able to push through things by just having a good attitude, and just trusting God…but even that has been difficult to do. I’ve actually been trying to pray myself and family out of it, but so far we just have to keep walking on.
What has been the one thing that has been able to lead me in the times I’ve really felt overwhelmed, and when I couldn’t do anything but cry was this one truth.
HE KNOWS. HE KNOWS. This has NEVER left His sight!
Only He knows how this will play out, Only He knows how to bind a broken heart, Only He knows how joy will come out of this from mourning.
His peace has been at my side no matter how I’ve felt.
And I believe that the peace of God was meant to be beyond our understanding, because it is something only He can give us.
Philippians 4: 7- (The Voice)
And know the peace of God( a peace that is beyond any and all of human understanding), will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One.
