A Sudden Change

I was not going to share this but figured it might help someone else. This is the conversation I had in my car the other day. “Lord, you say in your word do not be afraid so many times.” But I’m afraid right now. The sound of hail falling, the wind blowing and rain unlike any rain I’ve ever seen. “You have absolute power over heaven and earth.” But again I’m afraid. Then I saw shingles, wood and siding (parts of roofs) rotating in the rain, and it dawned on me this is a tornado. So I pray and the peace that surpasses all understanding fills my heart and I start to calm down. The tornado passes and I run out of my car home. There is nothing like home on a day like that one. Whatever your situation, circumstance or heart may look like God is always there.  Prayer changes things.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NIV

The first verse I memorize and mediated on because I use to have anxiety. God promises are available we have to choose to hold onto them. Hope you have a great week!!!
