In The Eye of The Storm

Sometimes life can make you feel like you're right in the middle of a horrible storm. You get thrown things at you left and right and it seems like it's never going to end. Just when you think it's over it starts up again. It makes me think of a hurricane, you get through the rough and the bad parts of it only to get to the eye of the storm. You think you are safe, everything is so calm and really great and then out of nowhere the storm starts again. What you don't know is that the second part of the storm is the way out and near the end. Getting through the storm doesn't always mean that there isn't destruction, sometimes there are pieces that are left broken that have to be put back together again. Work still has to be done to fix what the storm has torn apart. 

Yet, at the end of the storm there is also a beautiful rainbow, something great is guaranteed to come from the horrible mess that you just confronted. 
Yesterday I was driving and it was the most beautiful perfect sunny day, and out of one little cloud I saw the smallest patch of a rainbow. As I drove I stared at that little glimmer of hope my whole drive and then the song Hurricane by Natalie Grant came on the radio and I listened, really listened to the words. The whole thing gave me so much hope and I truly believe it was Gods way of telling me that He is with me and as always to be still.  
If you are in the middle of your own internal storm right now, just know that there is an end and if you keep God by your side through it all you will come out better in the end then when you first went in. 

Lyrics to Hurricane
By Natalie Grant 

You're spinning out of control again
Your life feels like a sinking ship
You're wondering how it came to this

Is it too late?
Is it too far?
For Him to reach you
And come to where you are

Step out on the edge
Don't be afraid of it
And when you feel the rain
Call His name
He'll find you in the hurricane

You're in the wreckage underneath
Your hope is buried somewhere deep
You're wondering how long it will keep?

It's never too late
Never too far
For you to reach out
And take a hold of love

Step out on the edge
Don't be afraid of it
And when you feel the rain
Call His name
He'll find you in the hurricane

Don't back down from the fight
He'll shelter you tonight
Just hold on for the change
Call His name
He'll find you in the hurricane

There's a place, there's a place you can run
When you fall, and it's all come undone
You'll be safe in the raging storm
So just let go
'Cause you are held in His arms

Step out on the edge
Don't be afraid of it
And when you feel the rain
Call His name
He'll find you in the hurricane

Ooo ooo...

And when you feel the rain
Call His name
He'll find you in a hurricane
