Bread for the Journey

I love to see dark clouds and their different formations moving across the sky but I am not overly fond of the storm to follow. And the same goes for the storms of life which are just as unpredictable and uncontrollable as the weather. They are not pleasant to go through but we need to stay steadfast and trust in God to see us through.
Yet when God created the universe he said that all he had made was good so even these 'life storms' are good for us.
Genesis 11:31 (NIV) "And God saw all that he had made was good.."
Even in my 'stormy' days I realize that this is good for me. Through them God builds character and I learn to lean on Him even more. We live in stormy times and must keep our eyes on Jesus. He is our help in our time of need.
Someone once said "The bigger the storm the more we need to trust".
Psalm 107:29  (NIV) "He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed."
Trust him, He is there in your storm today.
