The Coming Storm

There is a storm

Blowing in.

After a hint of spring,

The forecast is again

Very winter-like.

Like many families,

Ours is facing

A number of storms…

And not the kind

Reported by the Weather Network.

There are times

The storm can ground us.

At others,

We have to persevere

And fly through

To the other side.

I want to go beyond that.

I want to allow the winds

To lift me up,

To carry me higher than ever.

When I fly

During the storm,

When I rise above it,

I will be able to reach out

And lift others to new heights.

Storms will come,

But by grace,

We can prevail.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people (Galatians 6:9-10, NIV).
