Sitting here at my auntie's house listening to her massive fish tank... the sounds of a water fall soothes my soul. I am reminded of all of the things that I have gone through over the years and I think about the waters of life. No matter what I've gone through G-d has always been there life a fresh glass of water when my soul was thirsty.
I have gone through major floods in my life and I felt like I was not going to make it. I felt like I was being over taken by the water and I felt like I was going to drown. I felt like life was over and there was no hope.
Some times G-d allows the flood to come in our lives, not to kill us, but to cleans us!
I am reminded of the survivors of hurricane Sandy and hurricane Katrina... many people lost their homes and lost their cars, but when it was time to rebuild the cities a lot of the houses ended up much better then the original homes and cars. We as people tend to hold on to things and G-d wants to give us better so he has to send a storm to wash us from our things because we as a people tend to not know how to let go of stuff for a fear of change! So He will send us a storm because He knows what is best for us and He knows that it is time for us to let go of some things so that He can give us better.
All the hell that I've gone through has caused me to be stronger. It has cleansed me and made me a new person. I am wiser and stronger and I am going to be alright. G-d didn't allow my homelessness poverty, or depression drown me, but it taught me how to be a survivor!
I thought that G-d wasn't with me when I was going through a season that I thought was hell, but actually he was cleansing me. He was washing me so that I can let go of the unnecessary things I was holding on to in my life. He used my situations as an eye opener and a strengthening tool! When I felt like He wasn't there, was the times that he was there the most. He was there holding my hand through the flood and keeping me afloat.
So as I listen to the water flow I realize that there is life in water. There is comfort in the water! G-d is my water and as long as I have Him, I will live!
G-d allowed me to loose my cars and my homes and my jobs because He wanted to give me better. I held on to those things because those THINGS felt like security to me. I didn't see that in Christ I have all the security that I need. Now that I see the storm for what it is I am able to let go of false hope and false security and rest in G-d and let Him take care of me! I am better off then I've ever been!
