The tornado that hit Joplin, MO yesterday was devastating. My heart is heavy with the loss this city is having to cope with and my prayers are going up often for them and for the rescue workers on scene.
I am blessed to hear people thanking God they are still alive and when asked what they will do now – they say rebuild. That touches me in a deep way. Jesus knows their hurt and their loss and He is a God who builds. I know He will continue to build hope in their hearts and their lives. As a family who has lost a loved one in a natural disaster I feel the pain deeply. BUT I also have experienced the loving arms of our Father as we made the decision to continue and rebuild.
“Every house has a builder, but the Builder behind them all is God.” Hebrews 3:4 – The Message
