Summer Storms
By Nancy Quinn

Iowa has its share of interesting weather. And as I grew up, the tornado sirens were a natural and expected part of my life. As soon as the sky grew dark and the sirens sounded, my sister and I would gather our treasured possessions and head to the basement. My mom would carry the radio downstairs and my dad would go outside to watch the sky. I knew it was really serious when my dad would carry the mattress out of the storage area and we'd sit under it to protect ourselves in the event of flying glass if the basement windows broke.

The fear of tornados never really scared me. I just obediently went to the basement and knew I was with my family and felt totally safe. I knew my father was watching the storm and would keep us safe. And in the current "storms" of life, I can have that same assurance from my Heavenly Father. He holds us in the palm of His hand and I can have peace in any circumstance, assured that He's watching the storms.

They say that Jesus will most likely come back during our generation. And while the storms will intensify according to the book of Revelation, we can have peace that passes any human understanding. Only Christians can have assurance during these troubled times, knowing that our heavenly Father loves us and is watching over us. There are many people who are still out in the storms, and I want to bring them into my Father's house where they'll be safe. We don't know how short our time is, so I want to always keep a sense of urgency in my heart so that I can make a difference in the world while I still can, and rescue my friends and loved ones from the storms by sharing my faith and the good news that the Lord loves them with an everlasting love.

Psalm 10:25 "When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation."

Isaiah 25:4 "But you are a tower of refuge to the poor, O Lord, a tower of refuge to the needy in distress. You are a refuge from the storm and a shelter from the heat"

May God bless these words as I strive to edify and encourage others in their walk with Christ. Married 21 years, I have a teenage son, and two wonderful golden retriever/collie dogs. I am also a contributing staff writer to http://www.HeartFriendz.com - an awesome website just for women! Nancy Quinn
