Dorian: An Answered Prayer From God

So, upon hearing of the impending Hurricane Dorian, my prayers have been focused on asking God to diminish the hurricane or flick it into the sea. And today, I received word from the meteorologist that the plots were all in agreement that thr hurricane was indeed flicked into sea and will be travelling north now in the Atlantic. And I tell you, God answers prayers every time we humbly pray. And sometimes, as in this amazing instance, He answers us the way we ask. But know that He always answers prayers for the best of everyone involved. And know this… God is so very good!!!! He is a loving Father and takes great care of His children. Praise God, who has proven yet again that He is bigger than any hurricane!!!❤❤❤

Another Hurricane Coming

So, it seems Lady Irma has not.been gone quite 2 years and here comes Dorian. Well, what should we do? Panic? Buy everything n in the store? Talk about it and worry with it endlessly? Buy a boat? Leave the state?

I say no.

I say pray (with fasting if able), prepare what you can and rest in the Lord’s loving, strong arms.

I learned from Lady Irma that God is stronger than any hurricane. That will always be true just like it always has been true.

So, let’s be the light in this world and remain calm, pray (and fast if able), prepare what we can calmly, and rest in the loving strong arms of the Lord. He is so good!❤

God is Stronger than Any Hurricane

We lived through hurricane Irma. Living through a large hurricane really reminds us of how small and fragile we really are against forces of nature. But I am so glad I lived through it and miraculously no one in our city was injured or had much damage even through the eye went straight through us. This was my first of many fasts I did. I prayed and fasted and a lot of people were joining with me in prayer. So feeling the force of the wind outside would have petrified me but God had wrapped His calm and peace and even joy around me amidst the awe. And if He is bigger than the strongest natural force we know, He is stronger than any internal turmoil we are.going through as well. I can’t tell you how many times I have said out loud “God is stronger than any hurricane.” It builds faith, trust. God is it, worthy of all praise, honor and worship. God is Who to rely on and stay close to. And His power is even cooler because it is charged with love.❤❤❤

Current Hurricane Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please lessen the impact of the hurricane. Please protect life. May people draw closer to You, Lord, in prayer and dependence. You are so much stronger than any hurricane. Please give peace and comfort. When we went through the brutal eye of Hurricane Irma last year, you were there with us and helped us. Please do thr same for these fellow Americans and Christians and even the non-Christian so they may be saved. Help people to see eternally and also physically really get the help they need quickly. We praise you, Holy God, who is stronger than these winds and storms and for your vast love and goodness. You are prefect in every way!

In Jesus’ Holy Name we pray, Amen.❤❤❤

Working the Day Long

I didn’t walk this morning. Because I knew we would be working all day long. And we did. And I am exhausted. And this has been every day since hurricane Irma stopped by. And this is wonderful. We are all working together as a family and community. It is great. I love hard work. I have been burnt, tired, muscles well used, useful, truly happy every day. And every day God has poured out blessings for us. Today we had a family of titmouse birds visiting our bird feeder. And a woodpecker. And many butterflies and hummingbirds visited us. It is beautiful. I am truly happy and so very blessed by our loving God who loves us so well and beautifully. 😄 ❤ 

Hopeful Examples of Service in Community

Well, I have been working so hard on cleaning up and hauling away our yard and our neighbor’s and mom’s since Irma plowed through that I have not lived up to my visions of helping everyone I had before the storm. Everyone has power around me, thanks be to God and our good power company, so that sort of food help and air and water help is not needed. And everyone is pitching in so much that I can focus on cutting up and hauling away our dilapidated jasmine fence. Anyone wanting very, extremely very healthy jasmine roots, you are welcome to them, by the way. And tomorrow we will do the same. I am so impressed with our city and community and everyone chipping in and helping serve. It is incredible to see. In some towns you see the worst after a disaster, looting, destroying, making worse, but here I see caring, helping, serving, thriving. And this is hope for America to get back to that sort of unity. That is who we are made to be. That is a form of godliness. That is good, beautiful behavior. Love it! Praise God! ❤ 

Working Good & Hard

Hurricane Irma did a wonderful thing for me. I should say that God did a wonderful thing through Hurricane Irma. He laid down the short front and long side jasmine walls. Now we get to put up a fence! Two walls front and back of jasmine gone! My nemesis is lessened and more time is freed up. And we will have a great fence for a dog. So exciting! So worked my tail off today cutting and removing the jasmine from the wire and it was really hard work but so good because I know eventually I will have much less maintenance work! Yay! I feel so blessed and thank God He strengthens me. More to go tomorrow, should be done by the end of the week and a new fence put in behind me. Yay!!!❤
