When you are experiencing a storm in your life, it helps to know that you have a strong foundation. Storms will come. If your life is built on the Word, the Rock which is Christ, you will be standing after the storm passes.

2 Timothy 2:19 – God’s solid foundation stands firm!
Matthew 6:31-34 – God provides all that we have need of!
Romans 8:28 – God works for the good of those who love Him!
Hebrews 13:5 – He will never leave you, nor will He forsake you!
Seek Him first!
