surrender now

As we learn to trust in God, we enter into a rest – one that quietens us from fear and anxiety’s rush.

Additionally – the mind, body and the spirit surrenders and accepts…all is in Divine order.

Have you found a place of rest?

Wishing you balance and well-being. ~ Stormie Steele

Another Day of Lessons

Life is no respecter of persons – we each have a our daily share of lessons to learn, challenges to face and so on. This is a good thing. Each lesson is specifically and uniquely designed to accommodate its recipient/student. The Overseer (God) of our lives knows exactly which life experience works for our individual good. From the backed up traffic on an important day, to the long lines that never cease at making us wait – the lesson points to what’s happening on the inside of us.

At other times unknown to us, the things that seem to be delayed are working for our good too – we may never know how many “near misses” have been avoided.

Spiritual & personal development is always in pursuit of us, we merely need pursue that which pursues us.

When our love for God is the prerequisite for living and being, be assured, “All things are working for our good”. See Romans 8:28
What does it mean to love God? In part it means that we’re willing to seek His guidelines and principals for daily living, bringing them to the forefront of our intents.

Can we love God and make mistakes? All we have to do is look at ourselves and the choices that we make in order to get the answer for that one. “…least we forget how fragile we are.” ~Sting

Our conscious surrender to the One Who is in charge of all, directs our path in ways that are beneficial for our overall good. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will counsel you with My loving eye on you.” ~Psalm 32:8 (NLT)

As you prepare for another day, remember that each encounter is a lesson. You may or may not get its meaning on impact, but if you’re open & willing to learn – paying attention to your own responses & reflexes – you will indeed learn.

What’s your assignment today?

Be prepared to take notes, ask questions and be ready to answer them.

Live wise and live well. ~Storm

Work throughThe Issues…

red flower reflection

One of the ways that we keep dysfunction out of our lives is to examine the patterns within ourselves that have a tendency to cater to such.

What does that mean? It means that it behooves us to work through  the issues that cause us to misinterpret who we are.

We alone are responsible to work through the issues that separate us from peace and ultimately, our healing, ~Stormie Steele

It Goes without Saying…

Storm's Piece ~Driftwood

It goes without saying – whenever we operate from a perspective of worthlessness, lacking in self-love (self-acceptance) – we’re bound to encounter personal and relational dysfunction. ~Storm

Never Forget…

Never forget how unique you are, how your difference makes the difference.

Never forget that you are loved, realize it in your deepest core!

Never forget that you are worthy. Your worth has never been about what others say or do – or don’t do or say.

Never forget that you’ve been given the privilege of choice…honor it!

Never forget that your role in this experience that we call life is quite significant!

Never forget to encourage yourself, to accept yourself, to allow yourself to grow– to forgive yourself…to love yourself! Never forget that you have something to give.

Have you forgotten anything important about yourself?

Thank you for visiting Life Through The Storm. Wishing you balance and well-being. ~Storm Steele

Relational Health ~Separateness

Storm's Butterflies

As we permit life and our experiences to teach us more about love & of the invaluableness of our self-worth, we learn how significant it is to retain our separateness within all of our relationships.

Experiencing union with others can be wonderful, yet – not at the expense of losing oneself.

Your separateness & mine is priceless! Whenever we trade it in for the sake of any relationship, we misinterpret love & lose ourselves.

Your separateness is Divine – live like you know it…others will follow your lead!

Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm

It’s A New Day!

It’s a new day! Let your heart, your soul…your emotions sing a new song! Cleanse yourself in the healing waters of forgiveness…release!

Refresh your thoughts, for much lies ahead.
Let the past be gone…permit your tongue to speak of life, renewal…hope!

Why be stuck in the old – a new day dawns!
Can you not see it? ~Stormie Steele


Praise the Lord

How far are you willing to travel? Faith is an adventure into the unknown over and over again.

Into the unseen – faith lures me elsewhere…over and over again.

Faith is an adventure into the unknown over and over again.

Faith is hard. (Don’t try and convince yourself otherwise . . . it’s a losing battle.) And the difficult truth about faith is that it won’t answer all of your questions in life and it won’t solve all of your problems, either. Faith is about trust, not about being certain . . . and that’s not how we hoped faith worked.”  ~Cherie Hill

How far are you willing to travel?

Live wise & live well. ~Storm

The moment we let go (whatever we feel the need to release), I mean truly let go – we begin to live.

Living means finding purpose in the seemingly insignificant – gaining insight through the unexplainable, and becoming more than you ever thought possible through it all!

Living means defining & then standing on your own beliefs.

Are you living?
Have you “let go”?
Have you found purpose?

Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm

Breathe Deeper…


As I breathe deeper, I find a path – a door that leads me to places otherwise unreachable.

To the “quiet” I am carried to a secret place of restoration. I am escaped – taken to scenes otherwise unreachable.

Aaaah, my breath causes me to expand my perceptions beyond fear’s reach! I am moved to heights otherwise unreachable.

The “quiet” seizes me…heals me – teaches me & propels me into Divine places of rest.

Breathe deeply. Breathe deeper, deeper and even deeper. ~Storm
