Hurricane Harvey – God is There
My prayers go out to those who have suffered from the storm that has struck Texas, US area. For those who do have access to my blog and my avid readers, please remember that God is with us all during the good times and also the bad times. He sees our plights. In times of devastation He is not hiding behind the mask of an uncaring God, and responds to everyone suffering and in need of His help, who ask. He is holding the hands of those who love Him and are His own, including those now in pain in Texas.
I have a personal message for those in Texas.
God knows the pain that you are experiences and His gentle love and caring arms are reaching out to you to comfort you. All you have to do is receive it. He sees your plight, and the horrific period now facing you; He is not hiding behind the mask of an uncaring, vengeful God regardless of what others report against Him. Although it might not feel like it, and others report He is, He is not responsible for this awful weather. He loves you, wants to take care of you, and support you through the devastation that you are experiencing. His love and grace is long suffering, and He wants to help and comfort you. Times might be tough now, but remember there is always tomorrow. The rain falls on the just and the unjust, but the just have a savior, our Lord Jesus, who cares, comforts, and helps rebuild lives.
My Prayers are for you, your family, and loved ones, and they are abundant. I am believing God for help for you during the storm, after the storm, and may His grace carry you through this difficult period. I know His love and goodness will help you endure this trial and provide a way for you to handle it and my faith knows He will also supply a means for you to recover fully afterward, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers,
and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side,
and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge,
even the most High, thy habitation;
There shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honour him.
With long life will I satisfy him,
and shew him my salvation.
Although I am so far away and I am cannot physically help, which I would gladly, I wish to help in any way that I can. Along with my prayers, I have made a donation to help those which are in need. Please join me in giving to the red cross in order to help those that desperately need our help during this horrific period.
