The Four State Area is part of the country known as tornado ally. It has been this way since I was a child. Today on Facebook one of the weather pages for the Joplin surrounding area was beginning to post about severe weather coming tomorrow.
Here is the other thing, two years ago Joplin got hit by a massive tornado. We are exactly 3 days to the second anniversary of it happening. This weather has caused anxiety in many people, and put many of us on alert now. Please pray for calmness in the midst of hurting, pray for those who live in the FEMA mobile home area (not many left), and what God lays on your heart.
Joplin is still a hurting community, and prayers are a blessing to those who are comforted by it.
Please pray for the Joplin Area as we learn to realize that God is God, and He is always by our side. He is the one who draws us neigh unto Him. He will never leave nor forsake us. We will not be snatched out of His Hands. He is our reward. Our Banner. Our Redeemer. Our Comforter. Our Provider. Our Healer. Our Strong Tower. You are with Me. Our REward. Goes Before Us. Loves Us. Our Shepherd. Our Bridegroom. Our Joy. He is a Consuming Fire. Just. Righteous. Died for Us.
Exodus 14:14 New International Version (NIV)
14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
