Storm coming:

I’m sitting here waiting for the storms to come today. We are supposed to get some pretty heavy rain and thunderstorms this afternoon. But one thing that popped in my head is we know when the weather is going to be different. We see it on the news, we smell the rain and see the sky changing. But why don’t we see the storms coming in our own lives? What can’t we see that we should be seeing? I can’t go outside and see the sun shining but there is a storm brewing in my own life. I might feel different but not sure of what is about to happen. Why are some things so easy to predict when other things are not so easy? But I had to stop to ask myself is the reason we don’t see the storm coming because we don’t want to or are we in denial? I know when things in my life aren’t right but there are times I honestly don’t see the storm coming. Maybe I don’t want to face anything else at that time or maybe I don’t truly see it. Is it easy for you to spot storms coming in your life?

  1. I don’t think we always see what’s coming in our own lives because we sometimes lack the self-awareness to deal with what’s coming. We have the sense that something is coming, but don’t reflect deeply enough to figure out the from where.

    Either way, it can boil down to the fact that we don’t want to deal with the challenges ahead. Because those challenges will push us out of our comfort zones and to face things that we don’t necessarily want to face.

  2. I think you and @danigirl71 are on point when you’ve voiced how we can’t always see the various storms coming in our lives. When your spirit is aware of something coming in the air, you can feel an uneasiness in your belly, and while you may not know what it is, you can feel that inner alarm signaling that something is brewing and approaching… showing up when you least expect it. 😦 Storms have a way of not necessarily dismantling your life, but it does bring some type of change, that heightens your awareness and indeed pushes us out of our often complacent zones. Its purpose(s) may be a strength builder that prepares us for bigger battles yet to come and is a critical part of our spiritual armor.

    We may not be a meteorologist, but when we are still, focused, and get our proper rest to face our daily lives, think about this quote:
    “Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow, without a little rain.” 😀
