A Shelter in the Time of Storm

ODB1994_0810

Storms literally or figuratively, this word always brought disaster or even despair. Each and everyone of us faces storm everyday in our lives. It maybe financial, bills are just coming storming our mail boxes, work pressures, project deadlines that seems so impossible to accomplish, Family problems and issues that seems so impossible to solved right now, relationships that’s been bombarded by differences, Health Issues and Sickness that even the best doctors of this world couldn’t heal or a life been lived struggling by these world cyclone of problems, poverty, political wars, and social differences. In either ways, it’s been so hard to face a storm with these human capacity I have, I felt so weak and incapable of overcoming such terrible things.

Right now, Philippines, specially the central part were busy preparing for the super typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda that had just arrive on the Philippine Area of Responsibility today and would hit eastern part of Visayas tomorrow morning. I know God has it’s own purpose, if ever He will really allow such great calamity to hit the country. I know He has His plans of protection already laid for His dear children. I just prayed that everything that will happen will serve it’s purpose, to let draw people to God and let them know that there is God, to strengthen the faith of faithful believers and to aflame again the hearts of frozen believers.

Habakkuk 3:2 “O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.”

Whatever storms we may face, either literal or figurative we can safely hide under God’s supreme embrace and protection. The Solid Rock of our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s come unto Him and ask Him to cover us in every storm we may face as we continue to move forward in this journey called life.

The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
Secure whatever ill betide,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A weary land, a weary land;
Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

A shade by day, defense by night,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
No fears alarm, no foes afright,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

The raging storms may round us beat,
A Shelter in the time of storm
We’ll never leave our safe retreat,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

O Rock divine, O Refuge dear,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
Be Thou our Helper ever near,
A Shelter in the time of storm.
