Like everyone else, I grieve over the devastation that Hurricane Irma continues to cause. So much loss of property, livelihood and even life! It overwhelms me every time I think about it, and you probably feel the same way.
As hard as it is to trust the sovereignty of God right now, we must remember that this hurricane season is completely under His control. What is His purpose in such catastrophic destruction? I don’t know. I don’t need to know, actually. I only need to trust that He has His purpose in all of the sorrow and anguish that Harvey and Irma have brought.
Today’s hymn may help us regain a little perspective as we reel from the impact of these storms. Please don’t think I post this with a callous attitude; I have no desire to minimize the suffering that people experience as a result of these disasters. But times like this can strengthen our faith. No matter what Irma throws at us, it can be well with our souls.
