I woke up this morning with these words from Psalm 46:1-2,7 on my mind, bracing for whatever's to come with Hurricane Sandy.
We're hunkered down with storm snacks and a full queue on Netflix, hoping to take advantage of that for as long as we have power. We have water and flashlights and batteries and non-perishable foods. Maybe not enough, but it's impossible to tell how much we'll need. I've been through this many times in Florida, but have no idea what to expect in New York City.
The one thing I know for sure: God is in control. He is here with us, and He is for us. He brings peace to the troubled and comforts the brokenhearted. He will never leave or forsake us.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Hurricane Sandy's path. And for those who are safely out of harm's way, the scripture above holds just as true. I pray that you will look to God as your refuge and strength, no matter what kind of trouble you are facing. He is truly an ever-present help.
