Moms Are World Changers
A horrible storm came through. It blew everything off my deck, including a brand new AMAZING kiddie pool (I was extremely upset about this one!). Our power flickered several times until it was completely out.
I really hate not having power. I feel extremely unsettled, uncomfortable and it is just dark! As I am sitting on our couch, bored out of my mind (all I wanted to do was watch tv and chill) I looked out my window and saw a beautiful sky. It was full of vibrant colors; orange, purple and pink. Just breath taking….the only kind of sky you see after a storm.
I decided to go outside and take a picture. It was one of those skies I didn’t want to forget. I took a picture and I looked up and felt God say, “Everything that is new must have rain.”
Isaiah 43: 18-20 (CEVUS06) “Forget what happened long ago! Don’t think about the past. I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it? I have put roads in deserts, streams in thirsty lands. Every wild animal honors me, even jackals and owls. I provide water in deserts-streams in thirsty lands for my chosen people.”
Before you can be refreshed, before your “new” is here, there may have to be a storm. With a storm comes rain. From the rain there is water. In the water there is new, refreshing, life. Storms aren’t easy. You may lose power, feel unsettled, doubtful and discouraged! But once your storm is over I can promise you will have a beautiful sky and the ability to be refreshed!
I love how God says, “There it is! Do you see it?” I know that lately I haven’t even seen what God is doing. I just see a big black sky, with wet rain and no power! I never think about how without the rain I would have no water to drink, plants wouldn't grow, life wouldn’t be in existence! I just focus on the hardship, the inconvenience and the pain.
Today I challenge you to stop focusing on that desert; God is preparing that path for you! Stop focusing on your stormy weather; He is providing a stream in your thirsty lands! He will refresh your life, just like water does on a hot summers day! Don’t give up or be discouraged because God is creating something NEW.
