I have a house in Houston and yes, it got some damage in Harvey. However, that’s a “thing” and it can be easily restored. What I lost can eventually be replaced or repaired. In that I guess I’m a storm victim.
But as a survivor of some much tougher storms of life, I want to live as a survivor not a victim. ( A person who copes well with difficulties in their life – a person remaining alive after an event in which others have died.)
One who stood up to the storm itself, and who walked through the aftermath to find a new life that may not have included my past “stuff” where I was finding my security. But it did include the realized promise that God gave.
I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, the plans for good and not for evil to give you a future and a hope, so that when you seek me, if you seek me with your whole heart, you will find me!” — Jeremiah 29:11-13
Storms are not always made of wind and rain. Sometimes storms are made of hurt, fear and broken dreams or hearts. But these storms that are of “Biblical proportion” in our life are to be transient and what is permanent in our life is that promise and God’s forever love.
He is Jehovah Rapha…the healer of life and of heart and soul. I am a survivor of the storms because He is Jehovah Jireh (my provider). As storm survivors, we have to seek him with our whole heart. He will be found on the other side of the storms – whatever they are.
