We all try to avoid the storm episodes of our lives, but sadly it is an inevitable episode. Everyone that walks the surface of the earth goes through the storm for it is only common for humans to do so.
The Storm;that period it feels the world is tumbling down on you, that point all you want to do is throw in the towel cause nothing makes sense to you no more. The Storm; that season everything refuses to align, that point you have exhausted every measure and yet recorded zero progress, that point no one understands, that unpleasant yet important episode of our lives.
If you are passing through the storm, it's easy to feel God has left you and nobody cares, it so easy to want to give up and crawl back into your Shell. But what is life without challenges? What will life amount to without pressures? Don't wish to skip this period of your life, for it births a new layer of strength and a new sense of purpose in you.
It's quite thought provoking that some people pass through the storm and come out better and stronger why some never make it out of the storm. Let's look at a story from Mattew chapter 7 vs 24. Two men built their house, but their foundations were different. One had a solid foundation that withstood the storm while the other had a light and shallow foundation that gave in when the storm came.
Depth matters a lot. How deep is your life? Have you built systems and structures that can carry you in seasons like this? Structures that can support you when your strength fail? In the storm, these things matter a lot. You should also be able to reach in within you and draw the strength that lies there.
Don't give up in your storm, it's equipping you with strength for the next phase. Remember, diamonds are coals that did well in the fire. I know because I've been in the storm, I am in a storm but I am a STORM STILLER!! ~JUNE SERIES~SMYLE
