Something appropriate

In the midst of the could’ves, would’ves, should’ves, and the expected search for people to blame for the misery inflicted by Katrina, perhaps Psalm 46 will remind us of Who is always in charge. More importantly, where to turn for solace.

Psalm 46

1God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

8Come, behold the works of the LORD,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.
10″Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
11The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

“Be still, and know that I am God.” Better advice never recorded. In the meantime, we who are more fortunate shouldn’t just sit here quoting Scripture. A short list of places to donate through:

Our brothers and sisters are in need. Give of your hearts, give of your prayers, give of your wallets.

Thank you.
