Mourn with those who mourn

I take comfort in knowing that God is in control of everything, including what is happening in Haiti. Although we may not understand it, He IS in control.

It feels as if we are worlds away. I can't even imagine the pain the Haitian people are going through. This morning I read a blog of a woman in Haiti with her adoptive son. It all became real reading her experience. The cries of people in the streets and the houses that have just crumbled to the ground. One thing she said gave me a glimmer of hope. In the hillside near her home, that is still structurally sound, came the noise of women singing praise songs and reading their bibles. The best thing I can do to help these grieving people is to grieve alongside them, get down on my knees and pray & donate to organizations in the country giving aid.

Romans 11:33-36
'Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Who has known the mind of the Lord?Or who has been his counselor? Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him? For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.

  1. I'm glad that although things get bad around here, God is still in control. I pray that when the hard times come for us, we'll be the people singing songs and looking to Him!
