Storms are a part of life. Dangerous, yet exciting at the same time.

Yesterday a slew of tornadoes blasted through areas of the Midwest, causing death and destruction as it did.

Teresa Lee of the Wellington Daily News reported May 11, 2010 that, “Across the state of Kansas Monday, tornadoes kept popping up on the radar, but luckily for Sumner County those appearances were other places.

“‘Power lines were reported down on US 81 just south of Caldwell in Oklahoma,’ James Fair said, the Sumner County Emergency Management Director, and other reports of blown-over semi-trucks on major highways were reported through emergency radio traffic.

“According to the National Weather Service, tornadoes, hail up to 4.25″ diameter between grapefruit and softball size, and damaging winds were reported with many of these supercells, including several tornadoes in western and central Oklahoma. There were a few reports of tornadoes across south central and southeast Kansas as well.

“The supercell storms eventually developed into a line of storms that produced large hail and damaging wind through southeast Kansas and into Missouri and Arkansas.”

When this writer first arrived in Kansas, God told her not to worry about the storms. He said He would bring her through them all unscathed and unharmed. He said He had no intention of killing her off in a storm when her work for Him was only just beginning.

So with those promises in mind, it is easy to settle back and weather the storms when they hit, regardless of the type of storm. After being in Kansas for three years, so far so good.

So it should be for all believers. We need to trust God to keep us safe and secure in His loving arms. It is God who will help us to weather every storm that comes our way. (Psalms 107: 28-31; Psalm 91)

Sometimes He may allow us to skirt the storm. Other times He may have us go directly through the storm until it either recedes or we come through it. If we must go through it, then usually there is a lesson in it for us to learn. That is what we need to remember.

So trust God to help you weather the storms that may come your way. And be assured that He will see you through them all. You’ll be no less for the experience.

Psalms 107:28-30 “Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble,
and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet;
so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.”
