Hurricane Irene

"He stirs up the sea with His power,And by His understanding He breaks up the storm."  Job 26:12

I am praying this morning that Monday morning's blog post is not a call to prayer for hurricane devastation.  There is still time for God to do something really cool and spare the East Coast from some terrifying weather.

What else is there to say, really, other than mentioning that maybe if enough of God's people will pray, He will hear us, and He will send this mighty hurricane in the opposite direction- out to sea where it will dissipate and cause no more destruction.

So I guess I'm going to keep it quite short this morning.  All I keep thinking of is that a few weeks ago, for just a few minutes, Andy had turned on a TV program that was airing some footage from Hurricane Katrina, and I just cannot stop thinking of all those people who needed help in the aftermath.  I am praying that the situation doesn't repeat itself- that people have learned, and that if they are in an evacuation area, that they are in fact leaving. 

God is still a God of mercy.  May He be merciful to all the millions of people who live in that densely populated part of the country.
