i am laying in bed and all i can hear is the gargling noise of the rain through the slamming sound of the wind against my window. it sounds like a waterfall is right outside my sliding glass door. and while as a kid these noises would terrify me and send me running for my parents room, these sounds tonight are comforting. storms can cause a lot of damage and ruin many things. but the One who is creating the storm knows exactly what He's doing. and i feel like that i might relate to this jungle of noises outside my window much more than i thought. my life lately had been nothing short of a storm. everything seems to be falling apart. my health, friendships, my job, and my home life. i feel like i have been treading water and slowly i am sinking. but laying here in bed i realize that God knows what He's doing. this place i am at right now sucks but much like this storm things will be better and these trials i am going through will end. sometimes God uses the strangest things to show us how powerful and big He truly is.
with that i must go to sleep and prepare myself for my first trip out of town with my mom ever. good night all :) love you <3
