The Storms of My Heart
Storms in Life
When tragedy strikes more than once,
Great expectancy is found when tragedy continues to strike. If you have one bad experience after another, you tend to expect it to happen again.
When sudden losses are lumped together and there is no break in the clouds, the storms emerge.
You expect the worse.
Whispering the cries of agony, the heart expects to be hurt again.
Blinded to a sense of hope, a fear remained within the storms of my heart.
The ups and downs of my life's journey provided lessons to be learned. All claims to complain stepped forward.
Fear destroys a positive outlook and if we complain, then we remain.
Storms of Life
Fear struck my heart when I lost my job. Igniting a fire deep within me to destroy my hopes and dreams, but my fear of ashes ran out.
Separation torched my soul when my son and grandchildren moved out of state.
But it was disbelief that slapped its power when my mother died.
Heartbreak sank in with all its fears and pain. Gripping and shattering all my thoughts, everything felt out of control. The full force of the storm strengthened and it took hold of me.
It’s a slow fade and there’s a price to be paid.
An Ache for Faith
An Unexpected Storm
In wake of the storms, lessons emerged.
Delivering me out of the ashes, a stirring faith anointed me.
If tragedy can strike like that what greater blessing has He in store for me!
With promises made by God, the believer’s secret was revealed. The assurances of hope contained visions of my renewed dreams.
Of all these that remained, Faith, Hope, and Love, it was Faith-Inspired Elements that pushed my tormented skies over the rainbow.
Trusting God for all my needs allowed me to see the greener pastures ahead. By keeping my focus on my Eternal Father, I released the enemy of my mind. The enemy fled and I have been set free.
Hope tells us that where there is light, darkness has to flee.
Living with a divine expectancy for God to work is good to those who seek Him. For when they seek Him, they will find Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." -Jeremiah 29:11-13
In all things, love always hopes. Something praiseworthy happens when we actively outstretch our arms in faith to receive God's blessings. Opening the door for God to work in our lives we can expect great things.
We can find Hope in the midst of our storms.
Results are found when we pray, solutions are given when we believe, and faith is activated when we look towards the Holy Spirit.
Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding - Proverbs 3:13
Fear is the opposite of faith and love never fails. Always be ready to receive that blessing God has planned for you.
We are not islands for we are meant to reach out to others.
Hope breathes new life. Jesus gave me hope, He gave me life, and I have all that I need.
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.- Psalm 90:12
Out of great burdens, great blessings can flow.
