Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

rain, floods, winds

Rain
Floods
Winds
Is there a storm on your horizon?  Maybe you are right in the midst of a storm.
Sometimes life is stormy.
Life sometimes brings the  rain of troubles  knocking at my door, or the flood of overwhelming emotions rising up within me.   Sometimes the winds of destruction try to knock me down  or the rug is pulled out from under me slamming me against the wall.   There have been times when all three seem to be happening at once.  
Rain
Floods
Winds
Sometimes life is hard.
BUT God is with us.  (Matt 28:20)  He gives to us His strength.  (Isa 40:29)   He will make a way through each storm.  (Isa 43:19)
Matthew 7:24-25 (NASB)
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.”
In each situation (rain, flood, wind)  God  replaces despair with hope.(Psalm 43:5)   My faith  increases with each situation because my life is built upon the Solid Rock of Christ.  Whatever I face, I face it with God and in His strength.  My hope is in Him.
There is an old Imperial’s song that says:  “Let the wind blow, blow as hard as it can.  Upon the Solid Rock of God, I stand.”  https://youtu.be/6kl_vWYuFhQ
So whatever comes at me today, I know that God will be here. He will hold me up! He is my ever-present help in trouble. My hope is in Him!. (Isa 43:16, Matt 28:20, Psalm 63:8, Psalm 46:1)
 
Psalm 31:24 (NASB)
“Be strong and let your heart take courage,   All you who hope in the Lord.”
