Growing up in Iowa I’ve been through my fair share of thunderstorms… but never once has a storm had me scared for my life. Sure, a couple made me nervous but deep down I knew things would work out all right.
The same can’t be said for those in Florida affected by Hurricane Irma. I see the news coverage on TV and the images are startling. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to actually be there in a situation like the one they’re facing.
The fear, frustration, and uncertainty have to be taking its toll on all of Florida… and also on those who have friends and family there.
In times like this when I, and everyone else, feel helpless it’s good to remember there is something we can do; pray. Like it says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
