 Don't you just love thunderstorms? I know I for one do-except for one kind. And that is the kind that happens early in the wee hours of the beginning of a long and exhausting day. A massive one hit at right about 4:00AM one day. I was, to say the least, tired and trembling in fear. The thunder and lightning strikes felt like they were ripping through the earth and every veil of atmosphere covering it. Now these strike were powerful-and believe me when I say powerful.

 Can you recall that moment when you were young and you'd just learned about the rapture? Probably no more than 2 weeks after, you thought the rapture was actually happening. Maybe it was when you arrived home from school and found no one there to greet you. Or maybe it was through a thunderstorm like the one I just described above. For me, it was through one of the many thunderstorms common to Florida weather above.

 Now I knew that the rapture was probably a long way off. But, it still scared me very much, being a young girl and all. I was pretty mature for my age. All I could think was, "Wow. Is the rapture really happening? But there's so much more I wanted to do." With each heart-wrenching light show, my stomach curled and I realized how much more I could've done and been-how much more I could've done and been for God.

 Anyone who's been through that knows that...Ha... it's not very fun. (Of course that's not including all of you strong men who have "And I quote-never been through that". (Yeah, sure! Smile) Nonetheless, having an experience like that brought me to realize how much I'm missing the point. For so long I'd just been going through the motions: Being on fire for God one day and thinking everything's alright and yay I got a person saved, then slipping back into sin and feeling terrible about myself. Then yay, God saved me and forgave me and live that for a while, then slip back into sin and feel terrible again and so on... and so on... There were points where I'd get tired of it but still I'd say it's time to change and not even remove and replace anything. The time came though when it was time for me to GET OUT OF THE CYCLE AND JUST OBEY. Just obey God's voice! That storm helped me realize I don't EVER want to have that regrettful feeling again when the end finally does come. Therefore, I need to work toward seeing and showing God now for the day when I finally do see God. Because it's not enought to just know that I'm going to Heaven. There is so much more. So much more people, so much more places, so much more hearts!

 Once I got that mindset, thunderstorms didn't scare me anymore. I realized that no matter how scary it became out there, I'm inside and nothing can get me in here. I applied the same thing to God's Word. No matter how scary it became out there, God's Word is inside me, and nothing and no one can take that away from me. So just go.

 God commands us to bear fruit that lasts (John 15). So when God wants to prune you harder, reply "PRUNE ME HARDER!" because you'll regret it on that final day if you don't when you're on the bottom rank of Heaven for not asking God to prune you harder. Prune Me Harder God! Smile

 "Dear Heavenly Father, there is something I'm holding onto. And everytime I say that it's gone, it comes back and binds my hands and feet until I feel like my head and my heart is going to implode. I try to find meaning in Your Words but it's like it's just not there for me. It's so hard to fake a smile but I realize that nothing is going to change unless I remove and replace. Unless I remove this sin and replace it with love, and knowledge that nothing is going to happen to me in Your arms that You can't bring me out of with goodness and mercy (Isaiah 40:28-31). Will there always be comforting? Yes. But will there always be "comfortED"? No. No matter what though, what is there to lose with you on my side (Rev. 12:11, Romans 8:31). I put You in control, Lord, and I give my cares to You (Psalm 55:22). Love me in Your arms as I REALLY seek Your face this time. I pray that my life will show the people around me that it's possible. 

 In Jesus' name, Amen Laughing 1 Corinthians 2:9- "However, as it is written, "No eye has seen, no hear has heard, and no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who LOVE Him."" 1 Corinthian 10:13- Just seek ONLY God. I finally got that and I've seen things in ways I never have before.
