In 2005, Hurricane Katrina landed on today’s date, devastating the New Orleans and Gulf Coast area. It was a huge disaster, killing 1,833, and changing the city of New Orleans for years. It was not as deadly as Hurricane Maria, which you may remember a few years ago, but it was a big event for America.
When these events happen, it’s good to turn to God and his Word.
God is our protection and source of strength. He is always ready to help us in times of trouble. 2 So we are not afraid when the earth quakes and the mountains fall into the sea. 3 We are not afraid when the seas become rough and dark and the mountains tremble.
The Lord All-Powerful is with us. The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah 8 Look at the powerful things the Lord has done. See the awesome things he has done on earth.
Psalm 46:1-3, 7-8 (ERV)
Dear Lord, You are awesome and powerful. You are my protection, in you I am safe, even if there is craziness in the world. Thank you. Amen.
