Trusting God Amidst the Storm

Trusting God amidst the stormOne of the things I love about America is that she fights. Her spirit is brave. When disasters strike she stands tall, firm, and she survives. But hurricane’s Harvey and Irma certainly left their crushing, devastating mark on the residents of Houston, Florida and the Caribbean, didn’t they? I, like many others who don’t live near the affected areas watched the television in horror at the aftermath. Homes filled with water, debris, and sewage. Lives seemingly destroyed.

I don’t know why but I know there is a God. I also know that we can trust Him, even when it seems He has failed us.

I don't know why but I know there is a God. #hurricaneHarvey #hurricaneIrma #saltandlightlinkup Click To Tweet

Amidst all of the differences of opinion, America still unites. It’s just what we do. I’m so proud to be an American.

One of my dear blogging friends lives on the British Virgin Islands. This beautiful land was practically swept away. Marva and her family is safe, praise God. If you watched my Facebook live video last week, you know that there is a Go Fund Me page for her family. Here is the video in case you missed it!

Today’s feature is from Robin of Robinality. Her website brings me such joy. It’s bright, fun and different, and I love it. Robin lives in Florida, but wasn’t affected as badly as many. She reminds us of the calming power of Jesus in the midst of the storm. Her tribute here is lovely. Please check it out.

    Shannon, thank you for sharing! You have been such an inspiration to me in my blogging journey. All the ladies of Salt and Light have been an inspiration to me and I am so grateful for your encouragement and support! Thank you for all that you do to share God’s word and spread the light!

    Matthew 5:13-16, Salt and Light (The Message)
    13 “Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

    “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.

    I love it when American stands up and fights. When we show what we are made of by helping others.
