You are the anchor to my soul in the midst of the tragedy we are facing in our world today. The hate, the destruction of lives and property, and the natural disasters that are taking away moms and dads, children.
I got to thinking about water with the Hurricanes that have affected people we know and love and people we don't know. It can quench our thirst. It can cool us off. It can wash us. It cleans. It can drown us. It can cause damage. It can sweep away things and precious people.
The damage and devastation calls people into action and for that I am grateful. I am grateful for churches near and far that sent people, they raised money and bought supplies and wonderful people that took boats and belongings and time off work to bless people they didn't know. They are love in action. They are water for the thirsty. Food for the hungry. A healing balm for the broken hearted. A restoration for belongings damaged.
God is like this for us...An Anchor. A rescue. He is fierce in his love for us. "He is not wanting to get us back, but rescue us."*
"O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water." Psalm 63:1
