I Would Hurry

As I drove away from work, I had only been in my car perhaps three minutes when the dark gray clouds above me sent a great flash of lightning and the sound of thunder so great and consuming that I instinctively crouched down in the driver’s seat, clinging to the steering wheel. 

It was like a heralding trumpet, announcing the great storm to come….

Driving only a small distance on the highway, the torrential rain began. 

It was difficult to see the lane markings as I crept along at a slow speed with my tires throwing up waves of water from the pavement beneath me.

Once, a vehicle  passed by and the deluge of water from their tires arriving on my windshield stole all vision of the road from me. 

As I made my way down the six lane highway, the radio announcer related weather warnings completely accurate to my situation. 

The thought occurred to me that for so people, everyday life is a struggle, like trying to drive through a storm. 

People who do not know Jesus have an obscured view of life. 

As troubling situations arise, the road ahead is difficult to navigate alone. 

It’s hard to navigate through each day when they’re experiencing the storms without God’s guidance and direction. 

The psalmist said, “I would hurry to find shelter from the raging wind and storm.”

(Psalm 55:8)

That man you see, that woman you see—that grandmother or grandfather–that child—that person who doesn’t know Jesus as their Savior—they are stuck in a storm. 

They want to hurry and find a way out, but they don’t know how to begin. 

We can help. 

Those of us who know Jesus can start by talking to them. 

Talking to them about God and His Son, Jesus. 

They don’t have to remain on a stormy, six lane highway with their hands gripping the steering wheel. 

It can all change—the moment they believe. 

Who can you talk to today that’s struggling in the storm?
