A storm is defined as a disturbance of the atmosphere. Storms are usually marked by strong wind, rain, snow, hail, sleet, or thunder and lightning. There are various types of storms. However, for the content of this blog I will speak of the storms that are psychological in nature. Mental storms, like nature's, start off as disturbances in the atmosphere.
Disturbance in the Atmosphere
Some things are just out of our control. The death of a loved one, terminal illness, accidents, physical and or mental disabilities, and the like. Traumatic events can cause all kinds of psychological disturbances. Mental disturbances are marked by many elements.
The elements of psychological storms are more than disturbing; some are debilitating. They include, but are not limited to depression, stress, anxiety, overwhelming emotional distress, and or physical pain. One may get through some of nature's storms with very little effort, however to get through a psychological storm one may require assistance.
The storm Arose
When the storms of life come (which they come to every person) have faith in knowing that Jesus, who not only walks on water, is able to calm the storm.
No Storm too Big
And Jesus arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, peace, be still. And the wind ceased and there was a great calm (Mark4:39).
No matter what storms arise, remember that 'even the wind and sea obey God'.(vs41)
