I turned the lights on settled down with a book. Thunder claps jolted the house and flashes of lightning split the sky. Several pages into my book, a lightning bolt struck the house. I looked up just in time to see the bolt zigzag through the kitchen window, leap over the sink and slam into the stove and shoot out the other kitchen window.
Sparks dazzled throughout the kitchen. The bolt was followed by another bone-jarring thunder clap. I dropped my book and hit the floor. My heart raced. I gathered myself and fled into the kitchen to see the damage. Just as I started to look around, the lights went out. Fumbling around in the kitchen cabinet, I found a flashlight. As I turned on the flashlight, the lights came on. I checked the kitchen sink and stove. I couldn't believe the electric stove worked and the sink had no burns or scars. Miraculously, everything was fine.
As I looked out the window, the storm fled across the bay just as quickly as it had come. The Lord had truly protected me and the house. As I sat down, I realized I could exhale. What a relief!
The clouds turned to sunshine and a beautiful rainbow enveloped the beach. I thought of Genesis 9:16 when He promised His everlasting covenant between Himself and every living creature upon the earth. He mercy and faithfulness is forever.
