God is in control, we know that, however, we can’t help but ask the question “Why?” Why is the area in or near the city of Austin, Texas practically under water? Why did folks just like us have to leave everything behind and climb into boats, with only the clothes they had on? They had no idea where they were going, where could they eat and where they would sleep tonight. How would you like to be in their shoes? I saw people climbing into boats without even shoes! Yet, God is in control!
In nearly every speech he has made, President Trump has said we are all Americans and we should come together as one. And most of us have done that. We are all praying for those people and for the rains to stop. Many of us have gone to Texas to do whatever we can. The rest of us are giving money to those we know will help where help is needed. But we still ask “Why?”
President Trump and all his men and women are trying to make America peaceful. But we still see riots breaking here and there. The last one happened in California just when most of us had our prayers geared on the poor folks in Texas. How could they riot at a time like that? I think God had Harvey on his mind.
God knows that it will take more than President Trump’s administration to bring us to our senses. It says in Romans 8: 28 in the Bible: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” So, He allowed this terrible thing to happen because it is so hard for us to become one as President Trump asks. Will we listen and learn what is told to us? We still have our own beliefs, personalities and obligations but we should be all Americans, loving each other in peace.
Will it take a much worse happening to wake us up? I, for one,will wait to see the good that comes from Harvey. I hope and pray that I will wake up! Will you do the same?
