Itís easy to talk with others in the same storm. There is an instant bond, a trust, an understanding. Sometimes you donít even need words to relate to each other. But you walk a fine line when talking to others. Do you talk openly about your storm, hoping not to scare, disgust, or offend anyone? Or do you wait for questions? Iíve learned that itís hard for people to ask questions, but itís easy for me to answer them. My advice would be to ask questions, why not learn from them? Donít be afraid, just ask.
There is one conversation that remains consistent in every storm large or small. I feel this should be the FIRST conversation. The storm talk with God. Lord help me, show me, be with me. Lord grant me more faith, strength, courage, and self control. Lord have mercy on me and shower me with your Amazing Grace. Open my eyes and ears and mouth when appropriate. Show me how to help others. Amen.
In the end, surviving the strong storms and even small squalls gives us an obligation to share our experience with others. I found that the hardest questions typically generate the greatest amount of laughter. We have so much to offer others in need. So open your heart, lose your vanity, and share your experience when you are called on to do so. Remember, storms talk, but so does God - listen to both. Where one gives information, the other gives inspiration.
Ecclesiastes 5:2 - Donít be in a hurry to talk. Donít be eager to speak in the presence of God. Since God is in heaven and you are on earth, limit the number of your words.
