It shouldn't take a tornado to make me thankful for what God has blessed me with, but I certainly feel very thankful after this last round of storms.
What hit Arkansas on Monday and then moved east last night is a stark reminder of how life can change in an instant.
And I don't now about you, but today I am not most thankful that my family is safe or that I still have my house or that I didn't lose my electricity this time.....
I am most thankful for my faith in Christ.
That Christ saw fit to come to this earth and endure the cross and the weight of my sins.......just for me....so that if something did happen to take my life, I would simply walk from here and into his loving arms...for eternity.....is simply amazing. What peace and hope that brings.
And while I am truly thankful that my family is safe....I am most thankful that I can face the storms and trials of this life with the knowledge that I don't walk through them alone. I walk through them with the only One who is greater than them.
You can too, you know.
He died and rose again for you too.
All you have to do is let go of the reins....these storms are strong proof that we are not in control.
Choose to accept the free gift that Christ offers.....salvation.
I can't tell you that I wasn't scared this week, I was. However, there is a peace and a hope that you can't understand, but is available.....and it comes from God, through Christ.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
