Storms Have Purpose

Storms come to water what you've been planting. What are you planting on those good...and bad days?

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

That storm in your life…the thing that has come to discourage you, it was necessary. What comes with storms? Rain. What does rain do? It waters the earth. Those seeds you’ve been planting, needed watering. You need a downpour rain to accelerate their growth, to bear fruit.

Remember that mustard seed faith…yes, have you seen a mustard seed. It’s tiny. I know my parents and grandparents would always say…just have mustard seed faith.

Those seeds you’ve been spreading: the experience you’ve been gaining, the people you’ve helped, the great things you’ve done…those seeds…are getting watered in the storm.

You are more than a conqueror and you’ve already won. Claim it. Believe it. That is called faith. For those that may not believe in God or faith, just believing in yourself…you will attract those things you believe. It’s called the law of attraction. Believe it, believe…in you.

Don’t focus your time on the ‘what if’ but when. So you’re ready to reap the harvest of those seeds being watered…in the storm.

Don’t forget, flowers bloom after the rain. Rainbows show up. The earth is cleansed. Trust the outcome after the storm.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
