Storm Damage July 7, 2012

The storms came and the tree did not stand

This afternoon, a storm came through town.  After several very hot and very calm days,  suddenly the skies opened up and rain pour down.  Not only rain came with the storms, wind did also.  The radio said they weren’t tornadoes, they were micro-bursts.  Whatever they were, they tore up quite a few trees.

A neighbor down the street often has signs in his yard proclaiming Bible verses.  One of them says, Gal. 6:7.  “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

It could not withstand the storm

A lot of people are deceived.  They think they are prepared for the storms of life.  They have deep roots and strong branches.  They are strong and healthy.  But then the storm hits.  The storm will come to every man in its own way.  When that happens, will you stand strong or will your inner weakness be revealed?

Think about your life.  Are you ready for storms to hit?  It may be it won’t be a complete uprooting of your life.  It may be only a few branches will blow off, a few leaves will be lost.

Just a small loss
