The Storm

Lord, be with us now. . . . please be with us now.

    The storms of life will come and we must endure it until it passes.  It is not fun but it is often a teachable moment for those with malleable hearts and minds.
    Bowing your head is a sign of humble respect to the Lord.  It's a posture that demonstrates a need for a Comforter that is greater than ourselves. It says I need help and I can't get through this alone.
    Saying a prayer is our plead to the Lord to meet our desperate needs.  He will often calm the storm or calm you to get through it.  Your prayer requests never go unheard but the answer depends on His timing and will for you.
    Weather the storm because His mercies are new everyday.  Come rain or shine in your life, there is purpose in everything.  How you handle your storms is an example to many.  Are you thunder and lightning or are you making lemonade with your lemons?
    Gary Allan sings it best, 'Every storm runs out of rain, just like every dark nite turns into day.  Every heartache will fade away, just like every storm runs, runs outa rain.'
