My musings on Irma

I often joke that I live under a rock, but of course we've been paying attention to Irma.  Max​ has worked tirelessly this week at Martin's planning production and deliveries of bread for those in the path of this mighty storm.  I was supposed to attend a women's retreat with ladies at my church, but plans got changed last minute due to this crazy hurricane.  I may need to rename of of my favorite LuLaRoe tops after this week.  ;) 

Today, we're doing some last-minute prepping in case we experience a long-term power outage.  I've got Bethel worship playing this afternoon as I work in the kitchen (and seriously, play the "You Make Me Brave" album if you need some peace in the midst of this literal's free for Amazon Prime members).

As I was listening to my favorite song from the album, I was reminded of Matthew 8:27:

The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

Our God is so much bigger than this storm, but yet so many of us deny He even exists.  He could snap His fingers and Irma would instantly disappear.  But sometimes we need great reminders that we are not the Creators of this world, and that there is a God in heaven who desires our complete, whole-hearted worship of Him.  He loves us with an unfailing, undying love, and we ignore Him.  He paid the ultimate price so we could be with Him forever.  That kind of love is almost beyond our comprehension.  And we don't have to do a thing to earn that love.  It doesn't make sense from a human perspective.  That's the great mystery of our God.  He loves us so much, and all He wants is for us to rightly worship Him as the King that He is.
