Disaster! This country just experienced several major hurricanes, and now we have endured a massacre in Las Vegas. At times like this, I often think of the verses in Romans eight that my husband calls Groaning 101: “…we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves who have the firstfruits of the Spirit groan inwardly.” Many people are grieving the loss of their family members as well as their possessions.
We can be sure Jesus groans with us. “…we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are…Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Today I have Deb Coty who wrote: “Too Blessed to Be Stressed. She just experienced Hurricane Irma, and she’s going to tell us how she lived through that nasty storm.
