Sandy came ashore in New Jersey the other night and the devastation was immense. Many states have suffered because of the storm that blew in from the Atlantic. Homes were destroyed, lives were lost, and the clean up will take a long time.One area that was hit was in Breezy Point, N.Y. This community has suffered much from events that have happened over the last several years. On 9/11 they lost 59 people when the towers were destroyed. In 2006, a United Airlines plane carrying 206 passengers and crew crashed into that neighborhood, killing all. And last week, the hurricane brought flooding and fires. What the water did not destroy the fires did. The firemen could not get close enough to the fire to put it out and it jumped from building to building. They will rebuild and move forward. Over 100 homes were destroyed.In our lives, we have storms that rage all around us. They may not have wind and rain and fire, but they are the many things we deal with on a daily basis. It may be that we don't have all the monies we need to pay our bills. Our homes may be in danger of being repossessed because we can't pay the mortgage. Maybe our marriage is ripping apart at the seams and we are devastated. Perhaps the children are not cooperating as we would like for them to. And our health, or one of our loved one's health, is failing. What do we do? We trust in God. Though we may not be able to see how we will make it through all of this, God does. He will bring us safely through as long as we trust in Him.We pray. We know God hears and answers our prayers so we bring our petitions to Him so He can help us.We work. We do whatever we can and then allow God to do the rest.Some things we will never be able to change, so we adjust ourselves to what is happening at the moment. When our storms hit they are so much larger than everyone else's. But no matter how big we think it is, it is still small to our God.The folks who are struggling from Sandy will have help. So do we if we know where to look. And that look will always be an upward look. In your storm hold on to the Master.
