Stormy Skies

This past week we have had storm after storm.  And my, so much rain!  On Wednesday, we took cover in our basement several times as we heard the sirens go off.  My boys ended up sleeping down there one night.  For them it is an adventure.  Except for my youngest who is easily frightened by the thunder and sirens.  He asked me why God made the thunder.  I admit it's a side of God I don't often think about.  Too often I think about His caring, gentle and loving nature.  But, He is also strong and powerful, evident in the thunder we were hearing.

The next morning I read this scripture,
"At this also my heart trembles,
And leaps from its place.
Hear attentively the thunder of His voice,
And the rumbling that comes from His mouth.
He sends it forth under the whole heaven,
His lightning to the ends of the earth.
After it a voice roars;
He thunders with His majestic voice,
And He does not restrain them 
when His voice is heard.
God thunders marvelously with His voice;
He does great things which we cannot comprehend.
Listen to this, O Job;
Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God."
Job 37 : 1-5, 14

The elements of the storm did pass and all is relatively calm again.

Looking forward to lots of sunshine this week!

I just read that verse yesterday and thought about how thunder is likened to the voice of the Lord in scripture.

Sometimes we try to make God fit into our finite brains, and He is so much bigger than that. That comforts me.

Bless you my dear love...
