One of the most powerful storms ever to hit a nation fell upon the #Philippines just a few days ago. The devastation is enormous, and more than 10,000 people are feared to have lost their lives in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.
Many more have been displaced indefinitely from their homes and urgent help is needed.
I struggle to understand the devastation in the world we live in, but I do know this: Even when bad “stuff” happens, God is still good and He stands for us. And, God wants us to give thanks in all circumstances; it is an act of faith and it helps us put God in proper perspective.
Will you join us this week in praying for the Philippines? Let’s recognize God and all He has done, then believe Him for restoration, healing and protection for our brothers and sisters across Asia.
