"Suffering one, storm-tossed, uncomforted, look, I am setting your gemstones in silvery metal and your foundations with sapphires." Isaiah 54:11
"Sing praises . . . For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." Psalms 30:4-5

1 Corinthians 10:13 talks about God being faithful and will not letting us be tempted beyond what we can bear. It goes on to say when we are tempted, he will also provide a way out so we can endure it. I believe he also provides a way out when life becomes overwhelming and we feel like we’re drowning. We may be drowning in debt, in the darkness of depression, or struggling through disappointments brought about from others or from life not going as expected. God is always there when the spillway opens and the waters rush towards us. We just need to open our eyes and look for the way out, or through it, that he has provided. Many times, it is in unexpected places.
Today's picture was taken a few hours after the spillway had opened at one of my favorite state parks in Oklahoma last week. The other pictures are of the same area. One before the spillway opened and the other a few hours afterwards. What a difference! Life can come at us fast and hard some days with strong, scary currents trying to pull us under.
