Like you, I want to be there, helping them, holding the frighten children, nursing the wounds...but I can't. We can send money. It's not enough is it? We can pray and pray we will. I know I am praying God will use this to show Himself in a most powerful and amazing way. More importantly, I can praise God. I must praise God. We must praise God.
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you. ~ Isaiah 54:10
No matter what this earth holds for us, heaven holds so much more. Therefore, we praise Him in spite of the grueling pictures of dead bodies, bloodied victims, and dusty frightened faces.We have to keep focused on the eternal. May we all demonstrate His love, gentleness, and kindness as if we were there in Haiti with those beautiful people.
"Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders." ~ Deut. 33:12
Resting in Him~Pamela
