The Sunrise After The Storm




Have you ever gone outside right after a tornado has passed? Living in Tornado Alley most of my life has allowed me to. While I’ve yet to actually be in a tornado, they have skirted passed me on many occasions.


After a tornado has cleared it’s path, there is much devastation left behind. Shredded homes, shattered windows, murdered livestock, and even asphalt being torn from the ground, if the severity of the storm is an F-5, are some of the results. But, another effect of such a tumultuous storm is the beauty you’ll see afterward.


The skies of blue. The gentle breeze. The dry air.


It’s absolutely some of the most beautiful weather you’ll ever find. And it comes right after the storm.


Isn't that the way life is sometimes? We get knocked down and torn to shreds and wonder how we'll ever survive such a situation.


But then God.


He comes in and can make a horrific situation absolutely breathtaking.


Don't give up hope...the hope we have in the One, True God…the Great I Am…the Creator of the universe.


He is for you.

A tornado leaves with you with hurt spirit both physically and spiritually. Yes, the senerary can be beutiful as well as sorrowful with all the destruction. The power of God in those stroms can leave you with a powerful hurt for years. The trick is not to let it overpower you and to seek the grace of God to use it in a positive way.
