It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, numb, and hopeless when faced with the destruction we’ve seen over the last month. Puerto Rico is in a humanitarian crisis as it was hit by two massive hurricanes and is currently under flash flood warnings. Mexico was hit by two earthquakes and recovery efforts are underway. Where is God? My friends, he is here. The Bible says he will never forsake you – Hebrews 13:5. When you feel forsaken by God, I encourage you to trust His promise more than your perception.

If you’ve been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes that have brought so much turmoil, my heart and prayers are with you, your friends, and family. I am praying over for those that I know and those who I have yet to meet on earth and later when I’m in heaven.
Would you Join Me in Prayer?
Obviously, there are things you can do to demonstrate your love, faith, and care, but I believe that prayer is the most powerful thing you can do. Please join me in prayer for those whose lives have been affected.

Being the Hands and Feet
As Christians, we are called to be the hands and feet (1 Corinthians 12:27) of Christ. Practically speaking, this means to give of your time, talents, and finances as the Holy Spirit directs you to. If you’d like to give, ask your church if there is something specific you can help with. You can also give online. Here is a list of charities that have been vetted by Charity Navigator for Puerto Rico and Mexico.
While money helps restore, there’s nothing better than the restoration provided by our Lord. Sometimes it’s hard to see that through the tragedies, cloudiness, and tasks of the day. But, be encouraged! Surround yourself with those who care, find other like-minded friends that can spur you on, and likewise do the same.
I am so thankful for the community of Bible Journaler’s who have been lifting our friends and those unknown to us up in prayer. Never have I seen so much support, love, and compassion for one another. I am so blessed to be surrounded by those who care.
