Praise You In This Storm


This morning, I heard this song by Casting Crowns while driving to work.  If I remember correctly, this song was used in one of my favorite movies – Facing the Giants.

At any rate, I couldn’t help but think of my journey over the past couple of months.  I wish I could say that in the storms I always had praise for God.  I wish I could say that I was rock solid even when the ground around me seemed so shaky.  Honestly, it hasn’t always been that easy.  I’ve had questions.  I’ve had doubts.  Quite frankly, I’ve been mad at times.  Having said that, I’m thankful for the moments when I have remembered to praise God – even in the storm.  I have seen God working through my kids, through our neighbors, and through our family and friends.  I have heard God speak to me through His Word and through the storm.

The past couple of days have been good.  I’m thankful for that.  I’m looking forward to the weekend with my family.  I’m thankful for the calm that follows the storm.
