Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding~ Proverbs 3:5
Our town has flooded. We experienced terrible flooding in March 2010, and again in April 2011. Now, February 2012 will go down in local history as a time when the waters rose higher than ever before. It just keeps happening. Again and again and again.
You start to wonder, what is God doing? Is he taking a holiday, and one of the angels is up there going "Uh-oh...'? Maybe he's punishing us? Or does he just have a permanent blind spot where we are concerned?
The devastation is just tremendous. So many people, who have just been through so much. You wonder how it is possible to come back from this. Again and again and again. Surely people have had more than they can bear?
It's times like these, when you can't reason. Can't explain. Have no hope of understanding.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.~Psalm 118:1
I know it's easy for me to say this, especially when I'm sitting pretty in my nice dry house, surrounded by my family. I'm not sure how easy it would be to say this if it was my house flooded. But I have to believe that My God is greater than circumstances, more important than stuff, and more powerful than anything the world can throw my way.
And I just have to trust Him, and Love Him. Again and again and again.
