Last night, amidst the wind and fury, I sang hymns praising our God. You may think it my imagination (but I know better) , but as I sang, the winds died down, and when I paused in between songs, the howling wind seemed to rise in a fearsome crescendo. However nothing could steal the peace that my heavenly Father had anchored in my heart.
This morning, there is not so much as a tree branch fallen on our property! Our only damage is a single strip of siding blown loose, and an overturned porch swing! Tell me that God's hand was not protecting us....!!!
Tears of thankful joy flow down my cheeks as my husband and I offer up a prayer of thanks and praise to our great God. Praises to the One who leads me beside still waters and guides me through the valley of the shadow of death!
"The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.
Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart; who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob. Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty - he is the King of glory."
