Insanely Awesome Storms...

Wow. We drove home in a huge ran storm. It was bad. We could barely see. When we got home it stopped raining but it continued to thunder and lightning for a long time. I took my camera outside and took some pictures. I actually got one picture of a flash of lightning but it isn't that good.

But I thought the difference between the sky in front of our house and the sky directly behind our house was soooo incredible. Dark on one side and light on the other.
Now, thinking about that storm it reminded me of the disciples when they were in the ship with Jesus.

Matthew 8:23-27 "Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him.Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!"He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

I can't imagine being with the Lord when He rebuked the winds and waves. To me, the weather seems so powerful (i love weather..btw..its thrilling). I can't even comprehend someone just telling it to get lost. The more I try to wrap my mind around it, I can't.

It also made me think about this verse.

Psalms 19:1-31 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.

If only we could truly understand what a powerful God we serve. I fear all the time, yet there is no need!

Yeah,the more I learn about God the more I fear Him. For real. We cannot understand just how powerful He is and the magnitude of His righteous wrath. When I really think about be scary. But it makes me appreciate Him more! And rejoice in my salvation more as well!
