Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 (NIV)
Waiting. All the while knowing that on the horizon a tempest approaches. How to prepare? Chaotic thoughts swirling through the anxious corners of the brain. The need for calm is utmost for precaution. Examining all the possibilities. Not knowing the outcome. Millions are fleeing. Long lines. Dead-stopped traffic. Empty shelves. Exactly as God wants us to come to Him. Desperate, anxious, empty. Knowing that He is the only way out. Split-second, unexplainable, incomprehensible peace. He gives, He takes away. I will praise Him in the storm. And more so knowing the storm is approaching.
