Till The Storm Passes By

By Faith Magbanua, August 07, 2018 06:08 AM


I remember breaking my heart for the first time in a very long time. 

The feeling? Not as bad as the old one but also not as light as a feather.

In short, it sucked. 

It sucked the life out of me and I was bawling my eyes out for a good one month.  Until I said to myself "alright, that's enough mourning for one person."

In this life, there are many events that will try to shock us or break our hearts, but how do we keep going? How do we keep treading even though we are threading on thin ice?

What got me through those tough nights were my closest friends and also God.

As the Bible says in Psalm 107:1

"O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."

God's words helped me to get through that tough time of my life and I don't know what happened but the next day, I woke up feeling renewed again.

When we feel like we have no hope, when the storm becomes a downpour, always remember that storms makes oasis and God is the ruler of them all.

At the end of every rain, there is a rainbow waiting for you and it's not the end of the world for every heart ache.

Surrender your heart to the Lord and He will not fix it, He will give you a new and stronger one.

(v19) Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

(v20) He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

When you feel like crying yourself to sleep, cry, bawl your eyes out but always remember that every storm will pass.  God will give you that oasis and you will be whole again.
