Getting Storms Right
Soul Snack 107/12 ... Getting Storms Right
A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.
The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child. Full of worry and love, the mother got into her car and quickly drove along the route to her child's school. As she did, she saw her little girl walking along quite unfazed.
At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile. More lightning followed quickly and with each strike, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture." (anon)
Storms may surround you, they may even seek you out but amidst the tempest and the tears seek the child within that beams at the lightning for the light it brings.
"Keep your courage... have faith in God..." (Acts 27:25)
