Hour by hour I place my days in your hands, safe from the hands out to get me. Psalm
God is so faithful to wrap His loving arms around us, even in the worst circumstances. It's in these times that we know that He is God Almighty. Eight years ago, my oldest son, Rudy was in a car accident. He was a senior in High School, and was driving home from a friend's house with a couple of friends in his car. There was no alcohol involved, the parents at the home he visited were there the entire time.
He calls us really shaken up, and explains what happened. He went through an intersection, didn't see a car approaching and was hit on the right side. My husband left as quickly as he could to get to the scene. I was left home with my 6 year old daughter. Pray, pray pray, was all I could do. But wait a minute, isn't that also the most important thing? It certainly was because event though the car was totally ruined, no one was hurt.The girl sitting in the right front seat was fine, and the kids in the back were fine as well. When serious situations arise, we want "to do" something, and when we can"t we can feel helpless. Not so, when you know the Lord of All Heaven and Earth. Prayer is the essential thing that adds peace, comfort and grace to the mix!
Please pray and then pray some more for the victims of the Orlando tragedy. These people are our fellow Americans, the sons and daughters of people who need to know that Jesus can heal, deliver and set them free! Surely they put themselves in harms way, but no american should have to fear for their life at the hands of a crazed terrorist! Only Jesus can bring life out of death! Love to All, Ann
