Catastrophe

With all the news of tragic events in our world, it’s a bit overwhelming to comprehend. In my recent prayers, I’ve asked God  to heal our land, because we desperately need it. He brought to remembrance a bible verse.

If my people, who are called by my name,

will humble themselves and pray and seek my face

and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,

and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. -2 Chronicles 7:14

I pray for those whose lives were devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

And, for those whose lives were destroyed by Hurricane Maria.

Also, remembering and praying for families affected by Hurricane Irma.

In addition, for those impacted by countless fires.

Also, for those whose lives will never been the same after a senseless, horrific act in Las Vegas.

Although, it has been challenging to discuss natural disasters to my children, it’s been an even bigger challenge is trying to explain why people do evil things in our world.

Have you had a candid discussion with your family about tragic incidents? If so, I’d love to hear how you worked through it. Feel free to share with us.

Blessings, Rebecca
