A rip snorting storm blazed through our area this afternoon. I had a dear friend over for lunch today and we were surprised when the sky darkened and opened up relentlessly. Thunder boomed and lightning flashed as buckets of water seemed to be poured from heaven. In it's wake we have been blessed with cooler temperatures, but still high humidity.
When my friend arrived the sun was shining brightly, but shortly afterward it was a different story. Now again as I write this, the sun is warming the earth. It amazes me how quickly things can change with the weather and with life too.
Perhaps you feel you are smooth sailing and then you get that phone call that changes everything, or you hear unwanted news from the doctor, or some other myriad of problems. It's when we are in the midst of those storms that we need to make sure we have a secure anchor in the Lord. Only He can help us through situations that we face. He is our solid rock and firm foundation. I pray that whatever you are facing today, you will rest in the assurance that you have a Heavenly Father that cares for you and loves you deeply.
