A flood will change everything, and it should. It comes in and pushes out the old and brings new life. A flood changed everything, only if we let it.
I have lived through two tornados and a flood and let me tell you it changes everything. It changed the landscape of my yard. Of the original 18 trees on our property, only 5 remain. There use to be a fence around our yard but nothing remains of that either.
I believe that God allows the dasasters to come into our live to change us too. We get so stuck in our schedules and routines and we would never change them without an earthquake or two.
I've seen people who refuse to change. The flood comes. The tornado comes. The earthquake comes and they get busy rebuilding everything just as it was before down to the 1940's carpet.
I believe that God allows the disasters to come into our live to change us too. We get so stuck in our schedules and routines and we would never change them without an earthquake or two.
We have a choice in all of it. We can embrace the change and grow into the beautiful creation we were intended to be or we can hold on for dear life all that was and never truly get to see our true selves.
The earthquake you are going through right now was designed to cause beauty to break through the cracks. Don't get a shovel and try to fill it in dig it out a little more.
When you embrace it, it's only hard for a season.
Till next time....
