This is from my devotional this morning. I wanted to share it with you all. I hope you understand that even though I may be crying or seeming hopeless when I blog, I do know who holds tomorrow. I do know that God will not give me more than I can bear(even though somedays I think he thinks I am stronger than I am). So let me reassure you that even though I am venting, I have a Heavenly Father who will take care of me and one day I will be reunited with my earthly Father.
(I have a friend who does quite a bit of sailing, so I asked him if he had ever been caught in a bad storm. "Many times!" he said. Unbelievable! I had to ask, "Then why on earth do you keep sailing?" His answer was profound. "Mary, every sailor knows that there will be storms. The trick is to learn how to respond to the storm. In a fierce storm, there is only one thing to do and only one way to survive. You have to put the ship in a certain position and keep her there."
The same is true for the believer. When the storms of life overwhelm us, there is only one thing to do. We must place ourselves in the comfort of God and He will keep us there until the storm is past. Yes, God's comfort is faithful! What a great promise that every time we have trouble He will be there with comfort! The faithful and consistent comfort of God depends upon nothing but the character and heart of God)
This song, Praise You In This Storm, by Casting Crowns has been a blessing to me. It's amazing how words can touch whoever, whenever. I'm trying to figure out how to post it on here for you, until then here's the website address... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHdcyue0bSw
