 Singing to the storm!

HI Saints,



This morning Daniel, my down syndrome child, has Frisbee golf with the day summer camp that he goes to. He was excited about it. When we got up it was apparent that the weather was not good. As we left for the camp at 9am, it got really dark, in a way that you have to live in the Mid-West to really appreciate. It was as dark as night and the rain came on heavy. It takes about 20 minutes to drive to camp and Daniel and I have a worship time in that 20 minutes. Half way there he tugs on my shirt. I turn the music down(it was playing, "Have your own way Lord," and Daniel says with his broken language skills "I'm gonna sing to the storm." It just struck me, it was so profound. I turned the music back up.

As we continued to worship (Daniel with his hands raised to God) I began to wonder, "Lord, are you going to clear this up? " I began to cry as I considered the very simple faith of my son. Brothers and sisters, before we got to that camp, the light broke through the darkness and the rain stopped. Now me, I am weeping, not Daniel. He gets out of the car and he is muttering and he is speaking for God to the storm and he says " see storm, your not the boss of me." And as soon as he said it I thought of the Scripture, Mark 4:39- And He awakened and rebuked the wind and said to the sea "Peace be still !" And the wind ceased and there was great calm.



I had such a time with the Lord on the way home as I considered who He was. When was the last time that you "sung to your storm?" Maybe you are in the midst of a storm right now. Maybe its as dark as it ever has been. We serve a God that in the midst of the most violent storms can say "Peace be still." And suddenly there is peace. Can you sing to your storm today, can you praise God even in the midst of your greatest trials? When the enemy of your soul says "lets hear you sing now,' can you confound him and sing out? When your back is to the sea and there seems to be no way of escape, can you , in faith, begin to praise Him because you know that all power belongs to Him?

Praise Him today brothers and sisters, no matter what your circumstance, praise Him today. And the light will break through into the darkness of your situation as you lift Him up above your circumstances. He is high and lifted up and the train of His robe fills the temple. He is glorious in holiness. He inhabits the praises of His people. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies , and His banner over us is love.............brother Frank

Praise the Lord! Thank you for sharing.

I have a son with Cornelia De Lange syndrome who also has a simple faith that amazes me.

The Lord has used my son to teach me many wonderful things in life. Outsiders look in and see only difficulty, I look and see a tremendous blessing to our home, not just out of a fatherly love, but in the spirit I see the work of God in his and my life and I rejoice.

Thanks again for the encouragement, Jesus is King over every storm, He is the only refuge that will stand in the day of that great storm.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)


In Christ,

Ron

Oh brother Ron, what you say is so true. A few days after Daniel was born, the Lord whispered into my ear " I have given you a perfect gift from the treasures of heaven." I will never forget those words, never. And it changed everything..........brother Frank
