“Don’t tell God how big your storm is; tell the storm how BIG your God is!” My sister shared this quote with me, which came from her co-worker, who can’t remember from where he heard it. Nonetheless, it is a great quote.
I feel empowered knowing that Jesus Christ has our backs. He will get us through any storm. We just need to remember how powerful God is! And, it is awesome to know that God is within us!
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16 NIV)
It is encouraging to know that God is always with us. “Come close to God, and God will come close to you…” (James 4:8) Faith and love sustains us, as it is our God in us that gives us the fortitude, courage, and strength to get through the largest of storms in our lives. It is our God and Love in our hearts that allow us to see the blessings in those storms. Happiness and joy need not be elusive or vague. We just need to remember and trust we are not alone and that happiness has never left us. Our faith will carry us through any storm.
