Shirley's Soliloquies #653


God: My Constant

The Horrible Hurricane, Storms,

Death, and Destruction

that hammered Southeast Texas

for the last week and a half were terrible.

People’s hearts all over our country went out to all those involved.

Especially my son, granddaughter, her husband,

and their five children were on my heart and in my prayers

because they all live in the Houston area.

Amazingly, their homes were high enough

that the water didn’t enter them,

but their garages and yards were flooded,

and neighborhoods around them were under water.

In the midst of all of this turmoil and trouble,

my heart was comforted when I read Psalm 36:5-7.

It is good to keep my eyes and heart on the LORD,

and His great power, majesty, and loving care!

Your unfailing love, O LORD,

is as vast as the heavens

Your faithfulness

reaches beyond the clouds.

Your righteousness

is like the mighty mountains,

Your justice

like the ocean depths.

You care for people and animals alike, O LORD!

All humanity finds shelter

in the shadow of your wings.”

Psalms 36:5-7
