Through The Storm

A severe weather alert was issued for a small town, a few kids were excited to go and check out a dangerous approaching storm. They had no fear, they wanted to see a tornado, maybe see some awesome lightning. They didn't realize what they were about to get themselves into. They started to embark on a journey that they would soon regret.

Soon after the rains started to fall, they noticed something in the sky that was terrifying them. The clouds started to swirl, growing wider and moving at an alarming rate,it descended towards the kids in a matter of minutes. They were starting to get very afraid, soon their cocky attitudes were starting to crumble before their very eyes. If they were trying to test God, they were getting more than they bargained for.

A very large tornado, probably on the scale of a F3-F4 was just a few miles from them. Being out in the open with hardly any trees and lots of prarie didn't help them. They were in serious trouble and their lives were at stake. One of them happened to be a christian and he urged them to get down on their knees and pray. They thought it was rather silly, they laughed at the other boy. Soon their eyes would be turned to a nearby tree that was snapped in half heading right toward an electrical pole snapping it in two.

They saw the power and the destructive forces that were at work and they started to believe that maybe they should pray. They all got down on their knees praying and looking up. They pleaded before the almighty God, they knew that their consequences could cost them their lives, but they beleived that God would come through for them, not doubting for a moment they would die. They had no choice but to believe in a time like this.

Light emerged from the clouds in all directions shining down on the land. The clouds seperated, moved apart and the sunlight was everywhere. There was a rainbow that started to appear as a reminder that God would always keep his covenant with man. He also reminded them that becuase of their faith in him, he will spare their lives. His only request that they felt was to go and spread the good news of the Lord.

From that day, they went out telling of their story to people who were down and out and made believers of them all.

God is an Awesome God, and sometimes in our lives we start to go in the wrong direction, but he's always there calling us home. Don't ever think he won't accept your sins. He will today, tomorrow and forever.
