Chosen by God!
The airlines tell us, in their safety instructions, in the event of an emergency put on your oxygen mask first THEN help others.
Many of us have been helping, encouraging, and praying non-stop since Hurricane Harvey was forecasted and hit. We have been able to do this through His (Jesus'), strength. The sun is out. Let's take a moment and be refreshed and restored by the Son. We can't continue to help others if we don't take a moment to help ourselves.
Relax. Refresh. Renew. Revitalize. Restore. A moment in God's Presence can energize us to continue to do what needs to be done. We can't pour, serve, from an empty vessel.
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and [e]recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls." (Matthew 11:28-29 AMPC)
Thank you to all who have stepped up and stepped out to help others in any and every capacity. We may not know who you are, personally, but we have felt your impact. We could not have done this without you!
Thank you Houston for uniting across barriers that the enemy tries so diligently to erect to knock us down and keep us down.
Thank You Jesus for being our peace in the storm!
"He hushes the storm to a calm and to a gentle whisper, so the waves of the sea are still." (Psalm 107:29 AMPC)
