Our Stronghold

In case anyone hasn’t watched any television recently, we here in Florida are in for a doosie of a hurricane named Ian! So of course as we were finishing up our morning men’s prayer meeting the storm was central to our conversation. Just then my friend interrupted our small talk and suggested we turn to Psalm 46. This morning that passage took on a whole new meaning for us.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though tye earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. Psalm 46:1-2 NIV

Well we don’t have even one mountain in our whole state, but huge swaths of real estate are predicted to be under the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Some of us are evacuating inland, others stocking up on water and gas for their generators. But no matter where we decide to go we can rest assured that God is very present in this our troubled time.

    • Thank you, for your prayers Patty. We are not in a panic but are fairly busy with prep for our trip. We are just moving inland about an hour, which should get us away from the worst flooding and wind damage and the rest will be just trusting God to work things out that are beyond our control.

    • Thank you. Yes there are so many vulnerable older people who almost cannot be moved. Fortunately backup generators are mandatory here and all the facilities I know of are inland far enough to be out of the evacuation zone.
