As you all most know, Hurricane Sandy has devastated many lives. New York will probably never be the same. Dad and I read a story about the people who died on the Internet. Two people were crushed by a tree when walking their dog!
After we finished, I asked, "Why did God do that?"
He shrugged. "I don't know, but God has a reason for everything.

In one of my favorite books, This Present Darkness, the main character, Marshall says, "I sure hope God hasn't dropped the ball." Well, it wasn't a surprise that he said that. At the time, he was in jail for something he didn't do.

One thing's for sure, God can never 'drop the ball', even when it seems like he has. He is in control. God has never failed America, even through or abortion, homosexuality....etc.
Don't believe me? Think about this:

Think about how much God has blessed America. Think about our forefathers. Think about how much they had to go through to make our country independent. But they weren't alone. God lead their ideas and thoughts and we all know they would agree.

But you think about it, we were never 'independant' and we're still aren't. We could never make it if it wasn't for God. In fact, the reason there is so much sadness in the world is because the world has dismissed God. Even though he never really left, a lot of people, even our leaders, are treating God as if he's.... gone. But He's not.

He is here. He's looking at me right now and he's looking at you as you read this.
How do we know?
A new Britt Nicole song says, "When I feel the rain/I won't be afraid/Cuz' I know you are you say who are/You are the one still standing when everything is falling apart."
God is our refuge. He'll keep us safe, but that doesn't mean he'll won't lead us into unsafe places. HE knows everything. We don't. I know He has a plan. That's what this song is about. It was originally written for Haiti.
One of the worst probelms with us humans is when God blesses us we're happy with him, but when something like this happens, we turn against Him. But God hasn't let us. In fact, we usually see him better through our trials. We must remember that God is not the reason for this; this is our fault. We brought sin into the world, but we must remembered that Jesus will come back someday.

One more thought. People are using a certain word to describe this tragedy. Though I cannot remember it, I can remember what it means. It means last days. Jesus says in Matthew, "But concerning that day and hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but Father only.... Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."

In other words, keep your ey-eyes open.
