WHEN THE STORMS OF LIFE COME
Storms come into everyone's life on earth. We sometimes call them trials and tribulations. I heard one person say, "When you are going through a trial...a hard, difficult time, remember, this too shall pass. It will not last forever, bring it into a moment.
Illustration: Those that have had and do have migraine headaches will understand this comparison. I used to have severe, disabling headaches. I would be at work and my head would be throbbing with pain...I would say to myself, ' I'll work another five minutes, then I will go home...When that five minutes passed, I said "I'll work another five minutes'...after that five minutes I said "I'll work another five minutes and then go home.... this five minute span lasted until the work day was finished. Did I still have my headache? Yes, just not as severe, but I kept it in a moment of time. It will work in any situation you find yourself in.
I am reminded of the Eagle. I am told the Eagle can see from a long distance a storm brewing. As the storm gets closer to him, he simply flies directly into the storm, locks his wings and allows the storms turbulence to lift him up above the storm where he just floats around until the storm is over, then he flies back to his nest. When turbulent times come into my life I look at my Eagle and remember how he handles the storm, how God placed that knowledge in the Eagle to guide him through trouble to safety. Since God cares more for his children than the birds of the air we can rest knowing this is just a moment in time and God is our shelter in any storm, whether it be physical, mental, emotional or nature itself.
God is our shelter and refuge before, during and after the storm.

We all have storms come into our lives. I like how you handle your migraines. My daughter has them. Thank you for your kind comments on my article, God's Loving Arms. I wrote my book, Our Lifeship, to help women sail calmly on life's troubled seas.

I love this analogy. It is encouraging and enlightening. Blessings to you! Teresa
