The news has been filled with stories about Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. If you live in a part of the country that was not affected, it may not mean much to you. However, if you do live in those areas, watching hurricanes approaching, but not sure of exactly where or how strong they will be, can be stressful, to put it mildly.
However, whether we live in a hurricane area or not, we all have storms in our lives –although maybe not the kind brought on by Mother Nature. We all have times in our lives when things seem to be so overwhelming and out of our control that they bring up fears and apprehensions about what will happen, not just during the storm, but after as well.
The first question, when faced with a weather storm or a life storm, is to ask myself, “Have I done everything on my part that I can to prepare for the storm? Have I stored up what I need (especially faith) to face whatever comes my way knowing that I am protected and enfolded by Spirit?”
One of my favorite tools to use is Psalm 91. I find when I read it over and over again, I begin to feel more peaceful more serene. I know that, having done my part, I can turn the situation over to God and know that I am loved, cared for and protected.
This beautiful Psalm has always worked for me. If you do not know it – look it up and read it. It will bring you peace in the midst of a storm.
