"TRUST GOD TO GIVE YOU STRENGTH DURING THE STORMS OF LIFE"

"TRUST GOD TO GIVE YOU STRENGTH DURING THE STORMS OF LIFE" In times of terrorist attacks,wildfires though our country,storms,lost of lives,injuries, property damage, there are a number of questions that will fill your mind, and one question is what is going to happen next? Most of the worst storms we’ll face won’t have anything to do with the weather. But someday, you will find yourself in a storm and it can be very serious With that question at the forefront of your thinking, you may ask how can I deal with all that's going on though out this country, state, city, and even our local community, what can I do, and who can I look to, to get through all that's going on? I was out on yesterday June 13,2013 in the afternoon traveling with family, we stopped by home for a few minutes,later returned to our vehicle and started by cross town when in just seconds it became very dark all around us, black clouds, raging winds of over 70 miles per hours, the limbs of trees began to fall, while looking up into the sky I could see the clouds turning in circles above us. We decided to stop and get out of the vehicle and take cover in a local business. Once inside we know God gave us shelter from the storm. I can remember the storms of sorrow our family suffered on last year, when my brother got the call on June 20, 2012 from Japan that his son had been killed at only 20 years of age, what a time it was. Later on November 28,2012 I received a call from my Sister-In-law in South Carolina that my younger brother had been killed in Teaneck. New Jersey, another storm of sorrow. But i learned that through it all to trust God, and give him praise in the storms of life, He will give you strength to make it. "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah." Psalm 46:1-3. No matter what you are facing remember give praise in the storm, and God will give you strength to endure, and bring joy to your heart. "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5
