Day 1: The Eye of The Storm


The WORLD was at a STANDSTILL

as it WATIED for

hurricane Ian to enter into FLORIDA.

The WORLD had no choice but to WAIT,

because Ian was coming

whether it was going to be welcomed or not.

And IT HAPPENED.

Oh the devastation

appears to be beyond repair

on the outside,

and on the inside

of every person who Ian caused havoc,

as hearts have been pierced with

the aftermath of the destruction.

Oh how the love of the ocean and a cool breeze

became everyone's worst enemy.

We WAITED from afar,

as we were able to leave Florida

before

IT HAPPENED.

But leaving was not a celebration

as we left behind

our home

&

our community

in the

hands of Ian.

As we remembered the devastation

of hurricane Sandy,

we POWERLESSLY WAITED.

We got the call.

Our home is fine.

Tears burst from our hearts of the miracle,

as we were prepared either way

of what may have HAPPENED or not have HAPPENED.

You never realize the pressure you are under

until you get the answer

when you are

WAITING IN THE EYE OF THE STORM.

The EYE~

the supernatural CALM in the midst of WAIT.

THE EYE~

"Be Still & know that I am GOD" (Psalm 46:10).

THE EYE~

"YOU will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on YOU, Because he trusts in YOU" (Isaiah 26:3).

THE EYE~

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

THE EYE~

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD. And the peace of GOD, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 4:6-7).

Oh

THE EYE OF THE STORM

is where you choose to go when the STORM is brewing~

"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the MOST HIGH will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD 'HE is my refuge and my fortress, my GOD,

in whom I trust'” (Psalm 91:1-2).

THE EYE~

THE PEACEFUL PLACE OF TRUST

where you POWERLESSLY WAIT

with

the ONE who has all the

POWER

to make you

become

WAITLESS

as you

TRUST GOD

WAIT PATIENTLY

and

WATCH EXPECTANTLY~

"Wait for & confidently expect the LORD; Be strong & let your heart take courage;

Yes, wait for & confidently expect the LORD" (Psalm 27:14).

Will you pray with me

for Florida and all the HEARTS of those who

are suffering the horrific losses that this storm stole from so many.

To PRAY

for everyone to

WAIT IN THE EYE

for

RESTORATION

not only for their homes

but also for their hearts

for where

GOD resides

for

HE IS IN

"THE EYE OF THE STORM"
