When the Rain Falls- {Faithful Fridays}

Troubles come. No one lives a perfect life. Everyone feels pain, loneliness, desolation.
It is how we handle ourselves when it comes. Sometimes it's just a drop, a disappointment, something small. Sometimes it's a sprinkle, a lost hope. But what about when it rains, the lightning cracks, the thunder is shouting in your face, what then? When the wind is whipping your face and you have no where to hide. No shelter, no safe haven. Where then will you go? 
When you realize the storm isn't passing, and you have to face it, what's your response? 

Life isn't all sunshine and roses, it isn't good times and happy memories. Sometimes it's bitterness, grief, and anger. What will you do if your alone in a storm? When everyone has left you, and there is no visible help? 

Hopefully your answer is, run to God. However, in the stir of the moment, we can forget. 

Because, no matter what, you're never alone. Even when the world, people, and friends leave you, He is with you. He is all you need. No person, can fill emptiness like Jesus can. 
He has not left me alone. {John 8:29}
Do you feel alone? Lost, scared, and deserted? Like no one is there for you
Even when it feels hopeless, there is hope. No matter what you may feel, Jesus is always there. Even when it pours, and the wind blows, there is always a still small voice, to comfort, and to protect you.

Every step, every breath you are there.
Every tear, every cry, every prayer.
In my hurt, and my worst, when my world falls down,
Not for a moment, will you forsake me.

The Real Reason

I am terribly sorry, but today I do not have Easter pictures.. because, well.. I have none.
Only one person went to church on Sunday, and there were no Easter baskets or egg hunts. Anna Grace, Ally, Joshua, and myself were all sick. Last Tuesday, I fell sick with the Flu. The rest soon followed. Yesterday Lily became sick as well. So as you can see, there are no Easter pictures. 

But then again, are we ignoring the real reason for Easter?

We are all guilty of it, myself included. How often is our first thoughts of Easter on candy, and gifts, and prizes? I do.
I won't make this a lengthy post. But I have to post something Christ-related for Easter. 
Luke 24:3
...But when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

Hopefully we'll have a do-over next week-end, and try this Easter stuff again! :)
