Last night I was driving home in the storm and I could not see clearly at all. The lines on the road were invisible. The rain was pounding on my windshield and the wipers were washing as fast as the motor would allow but they were not able to keep up. The road was flooding. The lightening was flashing all around me. It was getting dark, and I was getting nervous. But as I approached the welcomed driveway to my home, I felt peace and comfort knowing I was pulling in the dry garage to waltz into my safe, dry living room out of the storm.
It reminds me of how I feel some days. I feel like the world is crashing down around me. I feel that I can’t keep up with the pounding rain on my windshield. There’s too much for me to see past. My mind is cloudy and nothing seems clear. I feel flooded with worries and troubles. The world and its easy fixes are flashing all around me but I feel dark and alone and I get nervous and anxious.
Then I realize I must refocus on God and His “welcomed driveway” comes into view, I feel peace and comfort knowing that I am home in His arms and I do not have to be afraid. The storm will pass. The sun will come out again. And through it all, I realize God was in control all along.
