My friend Karen would always say, "what a mighty God we serve". I was awaken by my son at 5:00 this morning telling me about the storm and that we had no power. I thought to myself, well I asked the Lord for a good night's sleep and he granted it, because i slept through it all. So I know for myself, that He is my peace in the midst of a storm.
Many things are washed away in the storm but know that new life is on the way. New opportunities, new ideas, and the list goes on. Don't focus on what was destroyed in your storm, focus on how to rebuild and look for new life. There is joy in new life and joy in building, get you some joy today.
