Approaching Storm: Sedona

As I watched the storm clouds sweeping across the sky, I thrilled to the grandeur of our creator's awesome power!

Stormy Weather

Dark storm clouds wait to unload their gift of water.
  We need the rain, but dread the storms of life.
But above the purple-gray atmosphere the sun is shining.
  And at last all clouds will be forever past for those in Christ.

Thank you, Lord, for the needed storms and for the rain.
  Through my pain I see You work.
I know your supply.


Why worry,
why fret,
why stew?
As though I had no good shepherd,
Who will lead me through
Every trial and heartache
Until I stand before You
Dressed in Your righteousness
Washed by Your blood
Fit to dwell above
In the land of the blessed.

Future Hope

Let life's storms blow as they will.
  I am at rest in Christ still.
He makes me triumph over death.
  His life is mine when I breathe my last breath.

When I must say "goodbye" to each dear friend,
  I know in Jesus life is without end.
We will meet again in that bright land.
  And there we will walk hand in hand.

Praising the One Who died that we might live.
  Eternal life He wants to give.
It is a free gift to those who call on Jesus' name.
  Yesterday, today and forever He is always the same.

Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.  Job 22:14

The Promise

Against a deep gray sky
  sunlight illumines intertwined arms
of pine trees,
  reaching upward to grasp the light.

Gentle drops of rainfall
  on the asphalt ribbon leading
to the lake beyond.
  Black pavement glows as if made of gold.
Foretelling heaven's roads.

Then we see it faintly shimmering
  in the sky ahead . . .
A rainbow -- promise of God's faithful care.
  Its multi-hued arc radiates promise.
A beacon in the air --
  A silent witness of unending love.
