Signs & Prayer...

This entry was originally written and posted in Life with Lynnie (LwL) on blog.com, rather than here on blogspot.com, due to the problems I had posting any entry, here. Now that blogger has this site working properly again, I thought I would copy and repost here, to save you from having to back and forth between sites.

Signs & Prayer…

Yesterday, I wrote on Life with Lynnie (LwL) about miracles. I am grateful that God blesses us with them.

Still, there is much prayer needed for the USA eastern seaboard, as there is a major storm attacking there, even as I write this. That very same storm will affect us here in Ontario, Canada, probably tomorrow.

The rain isn’t the big thing. It’s the wind. Yes, I believe all in the path of this storm need a miracle.

The high winds will cause interior lakes and rivers to probably overflow in some areas. And, will certainly cause damage and possibly power outages.

If my memory serves me correctly, about 10 years ago, we had a power outage that lasted four (4) days. We survived it.

However, my lifestyle is different, now. Then, I was in a house, where we could bbq, etc., if needed. But, now I live on the 17th floor of an apartment building.

If we have extended power failure, I will not be able to exit my building in my current physical condition. Nor, will a nurse be able to access my unit. Not to mention that I won’t be able to cook or provide for myself.

How grateful I am that early this morning, my daughter B called me. Wanting me to pack up and prepare for possible problems, she suggested I go to her home, to weather the storm.

At first, I thought… why? After a short conversation and some silent prayer, I agreed. Not just for my sake. But, also for hers. This way, I know she won’t worry.

Plus, we will take some items I have that will contribute to comfort at her home, should the power go out.

Even so, this storm is raging and can be dangerous to many. S, a Facebook (FB) friend of mine suggested that the recent earthquakes and raging storms are a result of God’s judgement.

Many would disagree, but I tend to agree with S. God’s Word, the Bible tells us so in many passages about wars, rumours of war, earthquakes, pestilences, etc., being the beginning of sorrows.

Luke 21:25 tells us, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;”

I pray you’ll join me in prayer that God will offer protection from this raging storm.

Even so, I must say how blessed I feel, once again, today. Not just knowing my Lord, but also with my family. I am truly grateful, Lord.

If you do not yet know Jesus, as your Lord and Saviour, please come to Christ, today. Your eternity in heaven will be secure. Without Him, you are not guaranteed, tomorrow.


Until next time…
