Storms of Life?

I am beginning to re-think those well-known sermon lines dealing with the storms of life. Is it not a bit more accurate, at least here in Florida, to name them the “hurricanes of life?” Well, consider it briefly. Hurricanes bring gust winds, tropical storms, destruction, shatters lives, demolishes material possessions, and separates loved ones.  The conspicuous truth is this: Storms are just too general of a term to reflect our reality. To me the idea of hurricanes seems to be a more realistic view of Providence and reflects even more accurately God’s works in creation. If He is the author of calamities, let us give at least somewhat more powerful analogies to the most powerful God.
Truthfully, jokingly and comforted,
Yours truly.
