The Beauty in Devastation​

The date is August 29, 2017. Houston Texas is literally underwater, and it seems very gloom for the fourth largest city in America. I read that they have received forty-nine inches of rain since the start of Hurricane Harvey. I’ve also heard that this storm has also produced over nine trillion gallons of water. It’s rained so much that the Weather Channel has had to come up with new colors to represent the accumulated rainfall on their maps.

However, I read a post on Social Media today that really hit me in the feels. The user stated “THE SUN CAME OUT” with some Sun Emojis at the beginning and the end of her post.

Houston has a long way to go but isn’t it beautiful how something we take advantage of almost on a daily basis can have a whole new perspective in the midst of devastation.

I want to leave you with a nice verse tonight since this is the first post. Also, this is one of my favorite verses. There is so much chaos in the world and Harvey has only contributed to it. This should make us rest easy!

Zephaniah 3:17 ESV
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save, he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”

What lessons do you think we can learn from this season of Hurricane Harvey?
