Sunday Update – Please Pray
We are currently experiencing the first outer bands of tropical storm force winds and rain. I have decided to shelter in place for the remainder of the storm. I consulted with several friends here who are also sheltering in place and made the decision this morning. We expect the main storm to arrive this afternoon. Once it arrives, we expect hurricane force winds for about eight hours. It may be a long night!
Unfortunately, it looks like the eye of the storm may pass directly over me. This can change. I will carefully watch the 11:00 update for any movement in the projected path.
Please pray for me today for a clear awareness of the presence of God with me. As long as I keep my focus on him, and not the wind and waves, all is well! I am reminded of Jesus sleeping in the bottom of the boat as the storm raged. He is in control. As a side note, would you pray for my parents as well? They are in Michigan. If you have children, you can imagine how it would feel to know your child is possibly in harm’s way. It would be a blessing to me if you would pray for them as well.
I have many friends in this area. I am praying for them. We are keeping in touch and taking care of one another.
I just sent an email to our email subscription list asking them to pray.
I will likely lose power. If that happens, I will probably not be able to send updates. I will send an update as I am able.
In all of this, remember – God is completely in control!
