Happy New Year and welcome back to Lessons from the Lake! It’s been a long season of me being absence from posting anything, but I am baaaack!
This past Sunday during worship, I saw a picture of a tornado. I have never been in a tornado, nor do I ever want to be. However, there are times in my life when it seems that I am experiencing the effects of a tornado passing through.
At first, I was unsure of what God might be getting at with showing me the picture. So, I simply asked and then waited for His reply.
In the natural, tornadoes are very destructive and scary. Yet, the spiritual significance for me, is something quite different. To me, a tornado represents a heaven to earth connection. A powerful move of the wind of the Spirit moving in and through my life.
Check out this weeks video blog to see what encouraging thing the Lord shared with me concerning the tornadoes in my life and yours too….
Psalm 91:1-2 (ESV)
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
After I shared this encouraging word with the congregation Sunday morning, the next day a lady heard this song playing on the radio as she drove to work Monday morning. I hope it encourages and ministers to you.

Psalm 91 is one of my favorite passages. I am a visual learner. The picure of dwelling, abiding being glued to his secret place is so comforting. Thank you so much for the reminder.
Calvonia – I am a visual learner as well. I love the picture that is painted with Scripture… it is so powerful. thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment.
So great to see and hear you! I hope that your Christmas season was wondrous and that you have a wonderful 2017.
Love this lesson from the lake, as you know we spend too much time in our lives in the eye of the storm. When things seem to be out of control I find my comfort in the Lord, it’s the only shelter that calms me and helps to restore a sense of safety.
Then I can get up and continue facing the challenges. Without that shelter I would be lost.
Thank you Nikki … yes, The last 8 weeks seemed to go by in a flash. I had a great Christmas season with my family, even though I woke up sick on Christmas 🙁 ugh … ended up resting and recovering the entire week, but it was still a wonderful time spent with family. I am so looking forward to 2017 and all it holds. I have missed your visits and your blog while I was gone on hiatus.
Oh yes, doesn’t seem like we spend much of your time in the eye of the storms .. I am so glad that God promises us a shelter and safe place in the midst of the storm. I agree with out the shelter, I would be lost too. So good to be back and get to chat again.
Love you visited me today so I get to visit you! I love vlogs, they’re a nice break from reading which I love but I’m somewhat addicted! You’re great on camera!.
Love the eye of the storm is still, like when we return to God in our storms ..we find such peace. Awesome. hope to visit again Debbie!
Hi Kathy, thanks for the visit back. and thank you, I much prefer to communicate by speaking, but being in front of the camera is sometimes not my favorite. Yes, we find such peace in the midst of storms when we are nearest to God. Blessings and I do hope you can visit again.
Great word picture. 🙂 Thanks for linking up with Literacy Musing Mondays!
Thank you Brandi and thank you for visiting from #LMM
