Praise Him In The Storm~

A little girl walked to and from school daily.
Though the weather that morning was questionable
and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to
the elementary school.
As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up,
along with lightning.
The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter
would be frightened as she walked home from school and she
feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove
along the route to her child's school.
As she did, she saw her little girl walking along at each flash
of lightning; the child would stop, look up, and smile.
Another and another flash of lighting followed quickly and
with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother's car drew up beside the child, she lowered
the window and called to her 'What are you doing?'
The child answered, 'I am trying to look pretty because
God keeps taking my picture.'
Just have a good day today and everyday as you
face the storms that come your way.

I got this from my sister today and I know many of you have already read this but to me it is a great reminder that we need to praise God not only in the storms of our life but in the good times to. Let the Lord be your refuge from the storms. Psalm- 9:9 Say's the Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed a refuge in times of trouble. I love this verse. Psalm 9:10 And they that know they name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord,hast not forsaken them that seek Him. When you pray this week try praying for not just your needs but needs of neighbors, friends etc. I know most of us do pray one for another but Self tends to be a human thing.
I hope you will seek Him when you need Him. Sometimes we wonder why we don't get the desires of our heart. Are you asking God for them? God Bless you today.Praise Him in the Storm!
