I didn’t know it was coming. Nobody warned me or even suspected it was going to hit. I was simply doing what I do when out of nowhere everything started to change. Dark clouds began to roll in and the sound of thunder was so strong the ground began to shake. Lightning was flashing all around me and the wind was quickly picking up speed that was sure to cause severe damage. It all happened so fast, all I could do was call on the name of Jesus and find protection as fast as possible.
This unexpected storm lasted for quiet some time. I wasn’t even sure what was going to happen before it came to an end. I tried my best to remain positive, while everything around me was being shaken. Soon the dark clouds began to dissipate. The sun began to break through and I knew the night was over. I had prayed, cried and held on with everything inside of me and it was finally over.
As bad as it was, when I look back on it and put everything in perspective, here’s the conclusion I’ve come to. Yes, it was unexpected…yes it did some damage…but I’ve learned the “3” greatest words after a storm. “I MADE IT”. Those three words say it all.The sky turned black, however, “I MADE IT”. The wind almost blew everything away, however, “I MADE IT”. I didn’t know it was coming and I didn’t know when it would end, but, “I MADE IT”. I prayed and cried through the night, but joy came in the morning…”I MADE IT”!!!
I’m not sure who this blog is for this morning. Maybe your marriage is in a storm, perhaps your ministry is feeling the affects of extremely high winds. Whoever you are and however bad this storm is, I want to encourage you to hold on with everything inside of you. Don’t give up and don’t get mad because you didn’t know this was coming. Trust in the Lord and make up in your mind that you are going to get through this storm. When it’s all over, get ready to say the three greatest words after a storm. “I MADE IT”!!!
