It Wasn’t a Waste of Time, If You Learned Something!
Last week I was worried about Michelle, my wife. She was in Orlando, Florida with Hurricane Erma targeting her and about 800 to a thousand people in the music and Radio Industry.
I know I needed to Trust God with her wellbeing. I found out for the first time in my life, my loved one was out of reach, not safe. I couldn’t help her. She was totally in God hands.
It’s easy to say you’re going to do trust God, but saying it and living it are two different things. At one point, I literally felt helpless.
Have you ever felt like you were in a similar situation? Circumstances dictated where you were and did not allow you to help or be in control.
God is always so good to me! As I sought His Word, He filled me with a peace… it passed all human understanding. There was no earthly reason for me to calm down, yet, I did.
He gave me this, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (NIV)
Michelle flew home safe the next day (Saturday)!
What would you do if your name became a catastrophic hurricane?
How would you feel?
My mom’s name is Irma and she lives within the current spaghetti plot as a CAT 5 churns.
Here’s a listener call from a Camille responding with how that horrible storm with her name felt.
Hope: Sometimes that’s all You have when you have nothing else. If you have it, You have Everything.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
“Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.”
[After you read the testimony offered here, Scroll down for the group Newsong’s “Hope Changes Everything”]
We’ve heard many things you’ve done to reach to our Texas friends. Whether help came from far away or close to home, you have “Served Others by being Real” in the midst of a horrific storm. The Hope you poured out Changes Everything!
The Ministry continues to hear from people driving from far away states, Nevada, Ohio, (the list is long), to as close as the next town over … Many of you sharing stories of how you saw Christ in so many people who were helping.
As assistance continues & remains a need, remember each day before it ends to thank God for moving on so many hearts offering help to others! You’re love “Connects people to a Real and Loving God.” God moved on your heart to “Share the Hope of Jesus and Know it Changes Lives!”
“When You Through Deep Waters, God says, I Will be with You!” ~ Isaiah 43:2
No matter what you face in the future, you will never face it alone. This is the key to courage: There is nothing to fear when you know God is near.
Some of you feel alone right now. You may feel it, but you’re not! You’re not alone. God sees what you’re going through. God cares about what you’re going through. God’s going through that situation with you, and he will help you out if you trust him. Remember, one plus God equals a majority.
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” (Isaiah 43:2 NLT)
