Storms...

So I was standing in my kitchen doing the dishes and thinking/praying/contemplating a situation my friend is in and the Holy Spirit clearly spoke and said this. "Quit waiting for the sun to come out, because you are probably missing the rainbows after the storm."
This then got me thinking about all the literal storms in the Bible and what great things happened in the mist of them. I only found two ('cause I need a better reference Bible). The two I found were the two I had thought about. They were the most popular Jesus walking on water and Johna and the Whale. (Do you know any more? Please share if you do.)
Sometimes I think we are just "waiting for the storm to pass" I hear this all the time, from friends, from the pulpit, on television...but are we missing little and big miracles that happen as the storm is in full force. God controls the land and the seas...as well as the winds that blow the storms along as they pass through. Point: He is ALWAYS in control. Physically and spiritually.
Just food for thought this week for me and something I think I would like to look more into. Anyway it was kinda neat. Maybe I will write more about this later. Like what good comes out of storms, like we get much needed refreshing rain (I am writing physically, but thinking spiritually). Anyway...

God is in control, but powerful enough to allow us to choose too!

There's the one with Jesus sleeping on the boat. And the only other one that comes to mind is Noah and the flood.
