Last Friday as I was preparing to post the September blessing, I found myself wondering what to do. Everything was planned and ready to go but I kept thinking… how can a devastating flood take place in our nation and not participate in helping others mend their lives. So we changed our plans! This month we’ll be participating in a Fill the Truck event for Houston area survivors. Together we’ll send supplies to those who lost everything in the Harvey hurricane.
I was sitting on my bed last Thursday looking around my room noticing all the things I would lose if my house flooded. The tiniest items on my dresser like my hairbrush, hair twist tie bands, lip balm, or special jewelry from loved ones. It’s really hard to imagine the feeling of loss until you’re in the midst of it.
We will be packing bags of supplies to give to those who lost even the littlest amenities and joining others to fill a semi-truck that will be heading to Humble, Texas, which is a suburb of the Houston area. Items will be brought to the Humble Civic Center Arena, where military personnel and veterans are on hand to receive the donations.
Thousands of people lost everything and will walk a difficult road in the next months and years to come. I find myself praying for my brothers and sisters in Christ whose lives changed overnight that God would give them strength and grace to walk through it and trust Him even more. I pray that their faith would not waiver and that God would open huge doors of opportunity before them. That they would see His hand of favor and blessing and use them to share the love of Christ to fellow neighbors. Mend their hearts Lord, and let them see your goodness.
Whether our nation is in crisis or in peace, God is in the midst. Pray for flood survivors, as well as fire victims in Montana. May God move upon the hearts of our nation!
