One thing about the storm is that it doesn’t last forever, it comes and goes. It is the size of your faith in God that determines whether you will make it through the storms of life or not. Overcoming the storms of life is not for the weak, it’s not for cowards but for strong people who know who they are. When going through the storms of life, your faith and focus should be on Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith, not your problems. It is during the storms when your faith and loyalty is tested.

The only way to overcome the storm is to face and confront it. Overcomers cannot afford to play hide and seek with challenges, but they rather face and deal with them.
The challenges you are facing are just for a short time, never allow them to rob you of your destiny. Don’t give up on your life, on your faith, on your family, on your church and on your career. Face those storms and trust God for a brighter future. God did not bring you this far to leave you. He has a purpose about your life. The word of God says- But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 43:31

While all the other birds fly away from the storm with fear, an eagle spreads its mighty wings and uses the current to soar to greater heights. An eagle doesn’t run for safety during the storms, but rather, it takes advantage of it to soar to some high spot. Storms need somebody who will not give up no matter how hard it is. During the storms, take advantage to pray harder and worship like never before. There are times when the storms of life hit you so hard, when the storms threaten to sweep away all that you have. I’m talking about times when the storms take away your loved ones, when the storms bring tension in the family. Those are the very times one needs to stand and face the storms. God is bigger than the storms of life. To overcome the storms, you to have faith which is bigger than the storms. It is not over about your life until God says it is.

If you are going to overcome the storms, you got to let go of certain things surrounding your life. You have to let go of some people, let go of all your fears and doubts. Let go of everything that is weighing you down and sour to a high spot. Leave gossipers to gossip, leave haters to hate. Overcomers don’t have time to confront everyone who badmouth about them. Failures and losers have limited vision, but overcomers see beyond the storms. Your storm will not last forever.

God bless you and your family.

    “God, not so much protects us from the storm, but is there with us in the midst of the storm.”

    Hi Mthokozisi

    Thanks for the follow *, as the reason I write is to share.
    * (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

    # By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Kind regards

    “early bird” (very) * craig
    * my “best” time (by far)

    Best wishes from the First City to see the sun (in summer) …and we’re also the first to see the sunset and the stars (in winter-time)
