Morning Motivation:”Fear of Florence” Psalm 34:4

When you think about it life can be scary.  Hurricane Florence visited North Carolina this week.  On the coast there was and still is massive flooding.   Countless homes have destroyed by falling trees and flood waters.  Looters have hit the streets in many of the cities devastated by the storm.  Many have died.

As I sit here typing, we are still getting storm bands caused by Florence.  We are under a flash flood warning in our county. It is loudly thundering and pouring rain outside, and I have two dogs at my feet that are afraid of the chaos going on outside my door.

Yes, life can be scary, and filled with uncertainty.  Life can also and is also a wonderful gift filled with joy and beauty.  But in the times of fear and confusion, God promises to be with us and comfort us and even take away our fears.

It is thundering so hard now that the house is literally shaking.  There is nothing I can do about that so I will put it in God’s hands.

I believe God walks beside us in all things.

The good, the bad and the scary.

Thank you, God!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
