I’ll Praise You In the Storm

by Kevin Litchfield

This has been an interesting week for me as I have focused on the path of Hurricane Irma. The threat of that storm prompted at least 2 responses;:

1) worry and fretting or 2) action causing water and food and lumber supplies to literally disappear off the shelves.

But I wonder this morning if any of you are experiencing a different kind of storm in your life – an internal storm perhaps one that is physical, emotional, financial or even spiritual.

In the midst of that storm you too are faced with options: do you become paralyzed with fear and dread or do you lay them at the feet of our All Powerful and All Knowing Ever Present Father.

I would love to offer my company in the midst of that storm by praying for you / by standing in the gap for you.

As I thought about hurricane Irma this week I was reminded of a Casting Crowns song. Here are some of the lyrics.

I was sure by now, God you would have reached down And wiped our tears away, Stepped in and saved the day. But once again, I say amen That it’s still raining

As the thunder rolls I barely hear your whisper through the rain I’m with you And as your mercy falls I raise my hands and praise The God who gives and takes away

And I’ll praise you in this storm And I will lift my hands For you are who you are No matter where I am And every tear I’ve cried You hold in your hand

Praise You in the Storm – Casting Crowns with lyrics:
