The daily broadcasts seen on the TV news
Astound and perplex…all the terrible views
Of the storms and fires and floods happening now
That cause us to ponder the why and the how.

Emotions are moved like sand dunes in the wind,
Potentially cutting off hope as we’re pinned
By uncertainties, even entertained fear
That we could lose those possessions we hold dear.

So some live lives of quiet desperation,
Just seeking help from the world’s strongest nation.
This kind of help will just be temporary
Like a band- aid from some apothecary.

One important thing we need to remember…
That God’s in control and does not surrender
Lives pledged to Him through faith in His Son, Jesus.
Our real home is Heaven where He awaits us. 

That person is blessed whose certainty is God!
