Storm Illustrations

  • A Picture of Peace

    bird nestThere once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them.

    One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror, for peaceful towering mountains were all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds.

    All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.

    The other picture had mountains too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky from which rain fell and in which lightening played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall.

  • Child Like Faith, Fear

    stormA little boy walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, he made his daily trek to the elementary school.

    As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.

    The mother of the little boy felt concerned that her son would be frightened as he walked home from school and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child. Following the roar of thunder, lightning would cut through the sky like a flaming sword.

  • God's Power

    As they brought in the last armload and closed the door, the boy waved his hand at the heavens and said, "Okay God! Let'er go!"

  • Sovereignty and Wisdom of God

    As the passengers were being bounced around by the turbulence a young woman turned to a minister sitting next to her and with a nervous laugh asked,

    "Reverend, you're a man of God. Can't you do something about this storm?"

    To this he replied, "Lady, I'm in sales, not management."

  • Trusting Advice

    stormThunderstorms had rolled through the region, knocking out power temporarily to some of the stores of this supermarket chain. So when a help desk technician got an emergency page from one store, he figured he knew how to handle it.

    Turns out it was not that easy. "When I called the store, a somewhat dippy cashier answered the phone," he says. "The cash registers were all off-line, and when I gave her what I thought were simple instructions to restart the registers, she was having trouble understanding."
