Hurricane in Life

The Hurricanes in Life

  1. Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

The hurricane coverage is dominating the news right now. The stories of loss and devastation are difficult to watch; but there are other stories of survival and the camaraderie of the human spirit. Every time a natural disaster hits some part of the world, it makes me realize once again how much we depend on God for safety and security.

This verse is one that I love. There are many others with the same theme, like

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.

I lived in Florida during Hurricane Camille years ago. I remember having to leave and not knowing if we’d have a home to return to. Fortunately, we were spared; but many others were not. Even though I’ve not experienced a hurricane while it raged around me, I’m sure many of you, like me, have been hit with a “hurricane” of life. Recently, I was hit with a few category 1’s and 2’s but I’ve been hit with a 5 before with the loss of my mom a few weeks before my wedding. There have been other “storms” in my life that were not as severe but all left some type of mark on my life.

Through these times of devastating “winds” and “rain”, I had to learn not to let the “storm surge” overcome me. The only way that I could do that was to lean on Him. It was during those times that I discovered what it was like to let God “strengthen me” and “help me”.

I pray that you will find His peace and strength during your times of trouble.

  1. Hello Beth Green,

    I became aware of your blog today when visiting christian bloggers on Goodreads, and signed up as a member. I am post 950. I liked your straightforward invite to come visit you. Isaiah is one of my favorite books in the Bible and 41:10 is one of my favorite verses. It’s nice to make your acquaintance, and hope we cross paths every now and then.
    God bless you and yours in sunny and rainy times,
