Finding Beauty in the Storm

Pin It Now!
I LOVE THUNDERSTORMS! Last night before I went to bed we experienced our first spring thunderstorm. There are a select few things in life I love more than a thunderstorm at night. 1) It means spring is COMING! 2)It's so comforting to be under my covers 3) Although the thunder is seemingly ominous, there is some sense of excitement and wonder.

Do you love spring thunderstorms? 
Today's post is about finding beauty in the face of a storm. Is it possible to find beauty in something so threatening, something so chilling? I think it is. When we find that beauty, its wonder and awe are even more exaggerated and brilliant.

So how do we find that beauty? We look in places that we may not be comfortable looking in, we challenge ourselves to experience things that may scare us, and we come to believe that nothing is impossible. We learn to direct our fear away from the things we dread most in life. 

So today I encourage you to drive right into the storm. Don't be afraid to go after the things in life that may seem scary or threatening. Challenge yourself and be proud of your accomplishments and values. Above all, know that no thunderstorm can ever stand in your way if you let it... and also know that after every thunderstorm comes a rainbow.

Go find your rainbow.

"You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus."
Philippians 4:19
