My faith is grounded in Jesus.
We are on the road in Iowa, and actually today (June 30) we had a crazy storm…3 inches of rain in 30 minutes and a tornado passed just a few miles north of us. No major damage at my parent’s acreage, but just north of them a lot of trees are flat, creeks are fast moving rivers, crops are flattened.
I know that my faith is one of the reasons storms don’t scare me. I know that no matter what happens, my faith will carry me through. The rock of Jesus will help me face anything that comes along. That is comforting. Faith is not an easy thing, that is for sure. Faith does not mean that storms won’t try to flatten me, knock me from my solid ground. Faith means that another layer of bedrock is added with each challenge. Faith is confidence that the sun will shine, I will continue to have loved ones, that I can persevere to share God’s love.
I hope that your rock is solid. I pray that your faith gives you confidence.
And I ask you to pray for the farmers who lost crops, for those who deal with storms.
