Storms

😉 Join me… complete with hand motions… 😉

🎶 The itsy bitsy spider, climbed up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the spider out. Out came the Sun and dried up all the rain and the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again. 🎶

How many of us can relate to the spider on the spout?

Did you know, there are three things that must be present for a rain storm. I find that extremely interesting as God seems to often have me facing internal storms. These things are.

1. Moisture
2. Unstable air
3. Upward lift

As I researched, it dawned on me how The Creator didn’t go to extremes to hide the storms neither while they are occurring nor their aftermath. Dark skies, big clouds, wind, rain, thunder, lightning, sometimes so big it shakes the Earth under our feet.

I cannot say the same is always true in my life. I used to be quite proud to be the queen of the mask. I had fast answers, “I’m good.” “I’m okay.” “Yes I can.” When really on the inside I may be screaming out, “Help Me!”

I would venture to guess many reading this are like the little spider… facing this upward journey that is life with a forecast of cloudy with a high chance of thunderstorms. Some may be very isolated. Then there are some in the midst of a category 5 hurricane… yet seeking no shelter.

Indeed the makings of a storm exists EVERYDAY of our lives this side of Glory. The only one who has ever been able to calm a storm that I know is Jesus Christ.

The way I see it, our tears, whether we allow them to fall or not, or be seen or not, are the moisture.
The world around us and our sinful flesh is unstable air. And yet we have an upward lift to our Heavenly Father.

I encourage you today to reach out to someone. Perhaps it is a faithful friend. Perhaps it is a leader at a church. Maybe it’s a time of deeper prayer. Sometimes allowing someone else in begins the healing. And when indeed the Son comes up in your life. You can lean on Him to dry up the rain within it and halt the storm.
