Eye of the Storm

When I’m caught in the whirlwind that I call my life, it’s hard for me to focus. I can’t seem to think straight, feel right, or even know how to move my feet forward, keep that chin up somehow. Everything tumbled down so much faster than it took to build up. What took years fell apart within an hour. I lost it all, everything I loved and I cared for. All I knew, all of my joy.
I was caught in the middle of a storm of a life that wasn’t much of a life anymore. It was all chaos. I pleaded. I reached upward toward my heavenly Father, begging for relief. He pulled me close and cradled me in. My life was still in a chaos but there I sat in the middle of it, consumed with His love. Even though everything was not how it should be, it was exactly as it should. I fell in love with the storm, knowing it was shaping me into the person I needed to become. I cannot grow if I am always comfortable. The storm raged, I at the center, worried about having no human love to consume myself with but there God waited with me patiently, holding my hand and saying, “It’s all going to be okay. Wait in the eye of the storm. You will know My Love most of all.”
