"We all dread the turbulent storms of life"

When we're going through the turbulent storms of life, remember that God will bring you through even this.

We never know what fate will befall us in life so We have to live our lives according to God's word, so can walk with us through the storms of life
We never know what fate will befall us in life so We have to live our lives according to God's word, so can walk with us through the storms of life

"We all dread the turbulent storms of life'

God is in control of the storms of life, that we all go through at one time or another. As long as our lives are going good, we don't worry, but as soon as the storm of life appear,we get worry and sometimes angry. We must understand that the storms of life happens to all of us. We believe that God is in control as long as life is going good, but having faith doesn't exempt us from things happening in our lives and that means the stormy weather too. God will direct the winds of the storm to be blown your way so you can end up where God want you to be. It's easy for us to ask why is this happening to me, but every storm has a direct purpose in our lives and we never know the answer until later. The storm may have been meant for our harm, but God will use it in our favor for our good. We should use our faith not to try to pray away the storms that come to us, but accept that God is working in the storm to secure our destiny.

Sometimes we all face different storms of life not because we were doing something wrong, but because we were doing something right. We must be assured that God never allows a storm to keep us from our destiny. what it comes down to is, we have prayed, kept the faith and fought against the storm and nothing has change, so, we need to relinquish the control of the storm and let God handle it because he is already in control of the storm, he using it to make us a better person. Sometimes, things don't turn out the way that we hoped for, but we have to let go and let God handle it. When our enemies form weapons against us to harm us, God will work it out in our favor, because no weapons will prosper against us. God always use the wind of our storm to blow us where he wants us to be.

The storms of life starts out as a test but it becomes our testimony of God's goodness. God always use the storms of life to increase us and not harm us. We have to believe and know that everything that happens in the storm of life is to bring us to our destiny. When we know that God is in control of the storm, we don't worry or fret about the outcome, because the God we serve is working everything out in our favor. We must know that God only want good for us and our loved ones. If you have read your bible, then you know that God has brought many people out of the storms of life, lets talk about a few: He brought Daniel out of the den of ferocious and hungry lions without a scratch, He saved Job from his troubles and blessed him twofold. He brought Meshach,Shadrach and Abiendigo out of the fiery furnace unscathed, and let us not for get Paul and Silas that was locked up in jail, God broke their shackles and release them from jail.

These are just a few of the wonderful miracle that God performed when everyone was going through their storms of life. These people were going through storms that was dark and bleak, and it didn't look like there was any hope or help in sight , but God changed that for everyone that had enough faith and belief that God would rescue them, and he did. We all must remember the storms of life happens so we can be a blessing to help someone else. In our time of stormy weather, if we find it in our heart to help someone else, God takes that into consideration and helps us more. We know that he is in control of the storm and we never know when the winds are going to blow in our direction and be a blessing to us because we're using our storm to bless someone else.

God never allows a storm , if it's going to keep us from our destiny, so we need to quit fight and release the storm so God can deliver us from it's power. In some of our storms, we can see the end, but in some other storms there seem to be no end in sight, but we must never give up to defeat because is in the center of our storm. When the storms of life come through and God blow the wind your way, he is blowing you where he want you to be and it might be a physical place, but a spiritual place, where he will fix things . The most important thing to remember is that God works on his time schedule and not on ours, because his time and our time is different. I do know if you have prayed about it, held on to your faith and are doing the right things in his sight, then the only thing you can do is to let go, believe and let God handle the rest.


Acts 27-14-15: But not long after there arose agianst it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

15: And when the ship was caught and could not bear up into the wind,we let her drive.

      This actually the truth about storms, that why we need to bring ourselves to always thank and give him praise in such trying situations. Thanks CO for the sound charge.

      Hi dear Raymond, so good to see you and thanks for stopping by. Tell your friend that when Jesus hung on the cross and died for all our sins,that day,he became exempted from anymore sins and burdens because of his death on the cross.We can't burden him or hurt him anymore, because God has exempted him from all sins and pains and that this is why he died, so we could live and have life. Tell him that Jesus want him to take the burden off of himself and give it to Jesus because Jesus doesn't feel the pain or hurt anymore because he already paid the price and if he doesn't use this opportunity to ask forgiveness from Jesus and forgive himself of his sin, then Jesus died on the cross in vain and we don't have anything to look forward to in the after life. Tell him to pray and ask Jesus what to do and he will get an answer that he might not like, but Jesus want us to unload our burdens on him,but it's not a burden to him. Raymond dear, I hope I have helped you some what with this issue. God bless you and I hope your friend can find forgiveness and peace. Godspeed.

      So true we all go thro some kind of storm, but with God's help we get thro to the other side, and we have grown that much more.

      Now I have a question for you, a friend of mine in another site he says he is a sinner well we all are sinners, but he says his sin is unforgiveable, the only unforgiveable sin there is when you speak against the Holy Spirit and its not that, its some sin he has done, I have said to him that he needs to go to God and repent and ask for forgiveness, (he has not been to church for about 35 years I told him he should go back and to talk to his priest about this he said that he does not want to place his burden on anyone as he sinned he'll deal with it and he will not even forgive himself)his answer to me was that he can not load anymore pain onto Jesus as He suffered enough before He went to the cross, I said that when we ask and repent we will be forgiven and have eternal life with Jesus for ever, but he still says he sinned and will not put any of his sins onto Jesus because his burden will put more weight on Jesus and He will have to suffer more, my friend says that because he sinned he will have to carry this to his grave.He said he will do this because he does not want to see Jesus suffer more.

      Do you have any answer for me I could pass onto my friend please Benny.

      God loves all

      CO,

      This reminds of something I once heard. "God may not take us around the storm, but He will go with us through the storm." Glad your weathering your storms!
