Storms catch us unawares. One moment, you’re walking along the shore, listening to birds, wind and waves.
Then before you can blink, thunder and lightning swallow your blue sky. Watching clouds boil across the sky, you may start wonder if you’ll ever find your way back to the light.
You may wonder why the Sower allows all the pain, and suffering. It doesn’t make any sense. If He’s all-powerful, then why doesn’t He make it stop?
Sometimes we don’t know the answers.
But even when we don’t understand, we know He is always there. Comforting us. Strengthening us. Giving us peace beyond understanding.
We know He will never leave or forsake us. And He will give us the strength to take one more step, courage to face one more day.
