373: FIRE

 Woke up early yesterday morning and headed up North. Before the sun came up, I looked up into the east sky and the color of clouds were turning fire red. Later that day as I was driving back home, there was a brush fire that was approaching a small community of homes. "Fire" in the sky.. fire on the earth.


All of us experience firestorms in our life. Fire destroys, but it can also sanctify.
Here are some lyrics to a song called "Eye of the Storm". The music video is below.

When the solid ground is falling out, from underneath my feet,
Between the black skies and my red eyes, I can barely see
And when I’m feeling like I’ve let down by my friends and my family, I can hear the rain reminding me

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm

When my hopes and dreams are far from me, and I’m running out of faith
I see the future I pictured slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus' name

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm

When they let me go and I just don’t know how I’m gonna make ends meet
I did my best now I’d scared to death that we might lose everything
And when a sickness takes my child away, and there’s nothing I can do
My only hope is to trust You, I trust you Lord

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm

You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm


 Here is the video.






Sidenote: Below are a few photos that I took this past week where I have felt peace in the middle of my own firestorms.
