Good Saturday Morning!
The winds have howled, roads have closed, tornado warnings and flash flood warnings have been issued, the temperature has dropped to 33 degrees, and heavy snow has been predicted for our little neck of the woods.
However, we have fared far better than many in Louisiana and several other Southern states. My prayers are with you today as severe thunderstorms (possibly tornadoes) will continue through parts of the South.
Although we may suffer damage...the loss of property, homes, trees, cars...or even loved ones (🙏), we have a promise...a promise from God.
That promise can be found in Matthew 7:24-25 and through this scripture, God's promises that "IF" we have built our house (lives) upon a solid foundation (Jesus) we will not fall!
He doesn't promise that the winds won't blow (trials) or that the floods won't come (struggles). He promises that we won't fall! He is there! He will hold us up! He will walk with us! He will give us the strength to carry on!
Lean on God's promise throughout today...and every day! God is there, He sees, He knows, and He will be there no matter what storms (trials, struggles) blow through.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25
Please be in prayer for everyone around the world that is experiencing unbelievable trials...intercede for them today...lift them up to the Father in prayer.
Stay inside and safe today..wrapped in God's embrace. I am praying for you.
Today is the perfect day to take some time for yourself. Make some warm homemade soup, watch a movie, take a nap and just be kind to yourself!
Have a beautiful blessed day with your family!
