Last year when Mrs. Imelda unexpectedly did what she did, my momma sent me the following message, “Remember, people are looking to Christians to see how they handle this. Be the light.”
I’ll never forget that.
As Laura looms over us, I keep playing those words over and over in my mind. As fear and anxiety try and take over every ounce of my being the following song keeps playing deep within my heart. I’m choosing to cling to these lyrics. Maybe they will help you as well.
🎶 In the eye of the storm
You remain in control
And in the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me
In the eye of the storm🎶
He is in control of the storms, and He will help us control our emotions -if we let him.
I’m praying for our homes. I’m praying for my precious new school that just finished construction two weeks ago from Imelda. But most of all, I’m praying for our hearts and minds to be strong in the Lord. I’m praying that through this storm, and every storm, that we can in fact be the light.
He remains in control, y’all.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
