And then Jesus sends a life preserver


.....and today was the first day I was able to thank Jesus for that storm....

It's so hard sometimes in a storm. 
Trying hard to seek Jesus and understand His ways. 

Recently we endured one of those storms. It didn't last weeks, months, or years. Just a week. But that week I was confused and the days after that week I just didn't understand.

I kept asking God, "why?" 
Why were we placed in that storm.
It didn't make sense.

And then Jesus sends one of these

This life preserver can be in the form of His word from the bible, word spoken to you, a gift
or in this case words from one of His servants.
You will know when you receive one of these beautiful life preservers because all that weight you have been carrying around suddenly disappears and you feel like you can finally be thankful.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, 
sweet to the soul & healing to the bones 
-Proverbs 16:24
