travel with Care

"For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone....
the LORD says ' He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble...'" Psalm 91:11-12,15

Bulletin boards were changed last week.  And the theme of one caused me to think twice...  Road Trip Through South Carolina.  

Such a road trip right now would be impossible.  Massive rains destroyed roads, bridges, homes, businesses and life. Flooding is not a catastrophe we are familiar with here. But as believers, we are very familiar with an even greater Power... God.

The power of God coupled with prayer is sustaining many friends and families. My heart is full watching the overflow of kindness and love across the state.  Family helping family, friends helping friends, and total strangers helping any way they can.  Surging are countless stories of care and tears of gratitude.  From the woman literally clinging to a cross for safety in the raging floods to the sensitivity of the LSU band learning the USC alma mater and fight song for the game Saturday -- we are witnessing ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  Oh, how good is our God! building our faith and strength in the midst of brokenness.

What a timely reminder! Father, each time i pass the Road Trip board, i will pray for all affected by the flood and for all ministering to their needs.  You do work all things to the good.  Thank You, my Savior and Rock and Refuge.

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
