WEATHERING THE STORM!

28 Sep

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely of facts and happenings.  It consist mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one’s head.”   Mark Twain

There is more than one type of storm, including Sharknato One and Two, and they may not be that far off into the future.  If you believe that, you may have issues I cannot the name.  But we all have issues, and sometimes we lose our way, oftentimes becoming delusional.

Most of us have survived something, and I have no doubt some probably were devastated, while others hunkered down to  “Weather The Storm!”

There are all types of tragic events designed to rip us apart.  Our inner being, (nerves) can reap more havoc than any storm imaginable, turning us inside out like Tsunamis, or Hurricanes ravaging the Earth.

We all have lost something, no matter the size, but, others have lost what may be equal in pain, to the lost and sufferings of others, just not in the same situation.  So, when some say, “I really understand,”  even when you think they don’t, they may.

Here’s an example: You may not have experienced Cancer, but your leg was amputated in an accident.  I claim that to be in the know, and you certainly have my attention.  And may I suggest that we do not take the advice of someone who has never experienced a similar situation?

FYI: We may want to be prepared and on high alert for those who are familiar, and still intentionally try to mislead us.  “The Know it All’s.”

Let’s not forget the escapee’s; those of you who have not experience enough to have this type of knowledge.  Pray and Thank God for hiding you.  And pray you never say in a negative tone,  “I’ve been there, and done that.”    Find the joy, who wants to know what Hell feels like?

Don’t answer that, for some it’s right up their alley; eager to open up the floodgates of disarray in order to create disruptive storms.  Evil in Nature.

But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.  (destroy)   Jude 1:10 K J V

When we trust in Jesus Christ we can whether any storm no matter the magnitude.  “A wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear.”   Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Listen, every storm is not out to get us.  The thing is, we will have problems because it is the way of the world, even when we are without fault.  Sometimes, because we are faithful, and in right standing with God, some dramas may have been created to move us on to our real purpose, as in my case; instead of spending our lives blowing in the wind, never becoming stable.

For instance: I am better off since Cancer?  Without the experience, I wouldn’t know my purpose is to pass on to you, in a Blog,  norvielcherry.com,  which is full of Testimonies and essays, concerning what I have learned over the years, and to be a Living Witness for Jesus Christ. 

So, having said that, Cancer had a direct effect when it came to turning my life in a more suitable and positive direction.

I believe the experience of experiencing Cancer was meant to educate me, so when I tell you Jesus Christ is Lord, and he is in control, no matter how humanly impossible this may seem for any situation, it’s true; I am a Witness to that.

The doctors were not hopeful of me surviving Cancer, not only did I survive the storm, it strengthen me.  I had four sets of Chemo Therapy, and for pain I took Aleve, go figure?   And Christ hid me from myself;  “To Kill the Head is to Kill the Body.”  (My Motto!)

With Jesus Christ in charge, I laid down a few days a month, and that was only after Chemo treatments.  Soon, I was up and going about my business as a Living Witness.  I had to and did  “Weather the Storm,”  in order to take on the task I believe I was called to do, and I am glad to report they are “never more than I can bear.”

No temptation has overtaken you but such as in common to man; And God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.  1st Corinthians 10:13

I survived because I openly trusted God, and was knowledgeable enough from past experiences, and going to a  “Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church,”  to place myself in His care, and under His authority.

I walked out of the Cancer Facility, leaving many behind, that were supposedly in better shape than me, and I cried.   My life was spared and I was allowed to leave to tell all Jesus is Lord, and we are all covered by the Blood of the Lamb.

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.  Acts 20:28  K J V 

I trusted God openly, now I am a verbal witness to His mercies. 

This is a Testimony, not an opportunity to brag.  I say I because Cancer happened to me, and the stories I tell have left their mark on me, the revelations will never be forgotten, and the education that lead me to here and now.  All in a season.

As a Living Witness, I can only speak on what I know, and I know what I am telling you now.  I was there, so it is what it is.  I had a choice, and I chose to allow Christ to use me to bear witness to you.  I am just keeping it real, there seems to be no simplicity anymore.

When going through the storm, you must openly Trust God, it’s something you cannot conceal; then go “boldly before the throne.”

Ask Jesus for help in the midst of raging storms, and for Him to take the lead in your life.  He may take sovereign over your situation, (having supreme rank, power, or authority.) then use you to bear witness to those who need or don’t know Him, (Jesus Christ,) so they can be freed from the wiles of the Devil, and walk in the ways of Our Lord.

And keep in mind that, ” Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm.”

Oh, I almost forgot about those others storms that may come our way; the one’s when we know  “The only safe ship in a storm is leadership.  Faye Wattleton.

In Jesus name we ask for shelter from whatever storms may come our way.  Thank you Lord.  In Jesus name we pray.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and
    engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could definitely be one of the
    greatest in its field. Excellent blog!
