We posted about the storms we’ve just had a couple of days ago and since then we’ve all learned more about the damage done to our beautiful island home. I’m sure that you’ve seen the images too: mudslides, floods and so many people who have suffered damage to their homes. But there is good news too, the Bison that were roaming around have been taken back to the safety of their paddock, power is back on in many communities and water is again safe to drink on the North Shore, to this we give thanks to God and the hard working people who’ve helped so many others. And again we thank God for the fact that during this devastation no human lives were lost, that we have such a wonderful community who will pull together in times like this and help each other, in all this we can see the loving hand of our Heavenly Father.
In Christian life we will go through hard times, but we are never alone for God is with us in all things. During all storms seek him out and He will provide shelter.
Let us give thanks through prayer for all that God has done for us.
‘And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.’
‘The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”’
2 Corinthians 4:17
‘For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.’
