Restoration

August 18, 2011

We had  storm about six weeks ago that included significant winds.  After the storm had passed, I went for a run out in the country.  I passed by cornfields that had been knocked over by the wind.   It was an impressive sight.  I felt bad for the farmers because of the apparent loss of product.

The other day, I ran past the same fields and was amazed to see that the corn had been restored.  A few weeks of sunshine and refreshing rains and the corn had managed to be restored.

I believe that our lives can be like that as well.  We experience storms in life that can knock us flat, but, given time we too, can be restored.  This is especially true for those who have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  God has the power to bring healing and restoration to human lives that is wonderful to see.  We might get knocked down, but God can raise us up again.
