"I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things." Isaiah 45:7
To some, this verse might not be very important. To many others, today, this verse is extremely significant. I live in Southeast Virginia...very close to where the tornado ripped through yesterday afternoon. We are praising Jesus that we were are safe and our home is not damaged, but my heart just aches for those that were in and around that powerful storm. Isaiah 45:7 shows us that God is in control of all things. He creates light, He creates darkness, He creates the heavy rains and winds. It ALL comes from HIM. The Bible also tells us to give thanks in every situation and sometimes it seems so hard to be thankful when devastation surrounds us, but we have to have faith in knowing that God will bring good things from this disaster.
Please be in prayer for those affected by this tornado that has devastated southeast Virginia as well as the Colonial Heights area of VA.
