About a week ago, a severe storm visited my family and I here in rural Minnesota. 60 mph. winds, heavy rain, and constant lightning flashed around us. At one point, after the power went out, the house began to shake from the chaos outside. I kept telling myself that the looming trees would not crash in through my sister's bedroom window. I told myself that our dog, who panics in storms, would not have a heart attack from all that was going on outside. I told myself that my horse wouldn't get struck by lightning if she got frightened and ran out to the middle of her pasture. But believe it or not, none of this did any good, until I remembered some simple truths. God sent the storm. God will stop the storm. God will protect if it is His will, and not protect if it is not His will. So basically, my family (including the furry family) was just as safe in the storm as in clear weather, because in both cases, God is in control. When Jesus finally convinced me that the storm wasn't under my charge and that worrying would do no good, I could finally sleep, (for the few hours before dawn anyway). Now, several days later, all the animals are fine. My family is fine. Our house is fine. And my faith is just a little stronger. Today I came across 1 Corinthians 1:17 "He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together." I can apply that verse to my life much better, and hopefully next time the storms of life come raging in, I'll remember His supremacy over all.

This was a very good devotional. I enjoyed the inspiration you provided with an excellent example. I would make only one suggestion. After a preposition or as the object of a verb, the object form of the pronoun is used. So it would be: for my family and me. I think some members have taken an on-line writing class. You might ask about that on a writing site in the forum. God bless you.

What a wonderful lesson you've learned and shared with us. The story was very descriptive and held my attention. Your writing flows and I love the ending message - a perfect take away lesson!
