I think that God is a Multimedia type God. He talks to us in many ways. He speaks through His Spirit, through His Word. He can even speaks through people and music. He also speaks through His creation, and the beauty of it all. The trick is listening, watching. acknowledging, believing, and doing or changing something because of what he has presented. He will not blast us with overwhelming bombardments of noise and images. His ways are meek and glorious. That is not to say that a storm wouldn't be a message from God, it could be, and yes it may be loud and overbearing but it is also glorious when viewed in the right way! I need to start seeing God more in all that is around me!
