A Voice in the Storm
I just want to say that I believe that God does talk to us if we listen to Him. He may not talk audibly so that we can literally hear Him like we hear each other. But I believe that He talks to us from within. That would be from our conscience, or you can say it is from your heart and/or a gut feeling or through someone else or something you read. I believe that God can use pictures, stories and events from our past to try to reach us. I also believe that He brings Angels into our lives for a reason. I believe that we show our faith when we believe in God and listen for Him. Don't you think that it shows just a little more faith when we believe without having to have an actual physical encounter with God/an Angel??? Remember when you were a child and one of your parents said "trust me". If you did trust them based on their experience or knowledge, you had faith in them without having the actual experience and doing what they were asking you not to. I don't know exactly what happened to Kody while he was out in that snow storm, but it was real to him. That's all that matters. Maybe some of these stories do seem unreal and unbelievable, but I know one thing for sure, I am thankful that I and none of my children or their spouses have ever been in these situations. I am sure that a lot of situations like these do not turn out so well. It sure is nice to know that God is there for us no matter what. Psalm 107 talks about being thankful! It talks about people who ask God for help and He helps them. It talks about people who have turned their back on God and when they have no where else to go and turn to God, He answers them.
