If You Don’t Like the Weather …

“Woodland Baptist Church is having church at 6:30 tonight. We have a basement if we need it. “

– Maurice Hays, pastor of the west TN church

What’s with all this weather? More than twice the number of tornadoes for the year already? FOUR TIMES the number in April! Hail breaking windshields in Dallas? Volcano erupting once again in Iceland? Old Man River flooding like crazy!?!? I remember Johnny Carson’s line years ago when the weather was so bizarre:

Mother Nature needs a Midol.

On a more serious note, one of the most heart-wrenching stories (and there have been a lot of them lately) is found at the link below. A young woman tells of her brave husband giving his life to protect hers. WOW. It’s about a 2=minute clip.

Please pray for the people affected by the weather, and know that God is in control. He is sovereign and is working His plan,

whether we like it or not

whether we understand it or not

whether we agree with it or not.

And believe it or not, He does love us and wants NONE of us to perish.

I know from experience that sometimes trusting God in the midst of confusion can be one of life’s greatest challenges. It can also be one of life’s greatest growing points. Pray that the weather victims can experience the latter, even if they need to go through  former to get there.
