God is Interested in Your Problem

Christy here, and I want to start out on a happy note. I cordially invite each and every one of you to my blog and leave a comment for FAITH's very own Angie Breidenbach. She is talking about organization and we're giving away a copy of her new book Gems of Wisdom.

Now, back to reality, which has been quite grim this week. Soon I will begin day 4 of 10 hour work days for my employer, a large, nationwide, insurance company. Some of my co-workers are on the front lines working 12+ hour days. I am giving what I can, though there is a desire to give even more.

I am not griping about having to work because the reason I am working is because there is much devastation in Alabama. There was much loss in Georgia and Mississippi, but Alabama took the brunt of this huge, devastating tornado that ripped through the southeast Tuesday April 26 and did not stop until Wednesday April 27. There are people who have lost everything. They have lost loved ones.


Author Jennifer Hallmark lives in North Alabama and shares her view of the storm's clean up at her blog.

Would you please remember these folks in prayer? There are people in several states that are suffering, and they need you to lift them up in prayer. If you can't be there to lend a hand, lift them up in prayer.

I'm watching Dr. Charles Stanley on television as I type this. I'll miss my own church service today, but the good thing is that God is everywhere. He'll hear our pleas. The title of this post is "God is Interested in Your Problem." Dr. Stanley stated that at the beginning of his sermon. The Lord is all powerful and He knows your needs. It's unimaginable to think of losing your home and your spouse in one storm, but that's happened to people this week. God knows their deepest thoughts and fears, just like He knows your thoughts and fears and my thoughts and fears. You and I may not have the same magnitude of a need right now, but because God is so good and holy, He can meet our needs no matter where we are or at what depth of despair we're experiencing.

Dear Heavenly Father, 
We lift the ones who have lost everything up to You now. We lift those who are lost. We lift up those who have been through the worst storm of their life and need Your guidance. We ask that in the midst of this devastation that You will show Your face and that You will comfort and draw them closer to You. We ask that anyone who does not know Your Son Jesus that they will come to receive Him. That they will be saved and will have the assurance that though there may be devastation here on earth, there will be Glory with You for eternity. Amen.
