The same wind that blows the storm away

Photo taken by our friend Patricia

The other day Patricia, a friend of ours in Florida, posted many beautiful pictures of this dark, rainy sky.  This is one I swiped from her facebook page.  It made me think of this line from a song that talks about the wind that blows in the storm is the same wind that will blow the storm away.  I could not think of the song, and it is so obscure that Google could not help me.  I remembered it this morning.  It is Andrew Peterson’s song, “The Dark Before the Dawn. ”

I know when I post things about tough times and depression, lots of people stumble on to it and read it.  I know lots of people who suffer from the lies of the enemy.  Lies like they are not worth anything, nobody likes them, etc.

The truth is, the Bible says we are all made in the image of God.  The truth is that God loves you so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross for you.  The truth is, He is always with His children, never leaving them abandoned.  God even has a name for His way of always being with you, “the Spirit of Truth”.

John 14:16-17: “And  I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever — the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.…”

I hope you will pause and concentrate for 4 minutes and 40 seconds, not looking at Facebook, or checking email, but focus as you listen to Andrew Peterson sing about hope from despair.

  1. It’s true – we’ve lost the art of sitting still without fiddling with our devices. Great post.
