This side of Heaven!



This picture needs no words.

I intended to do a full weekend recap but it just didn’t seem appropriate. I’m sure many of you have seen the devastation that took place in the Nashville area of TN over the weekend.

I have a very special place in my heart for Nashville and I don’t even live there but as many of you know, I hope to after I get out of school.

My heart goes out to the people that have lost their homes, personal belongings, and most of all loved ones. I can’t even imagine.

Can I just say one thing though?

God is still sovereign. He still sits on the throne.

And can I say another thing?

He’s coming like YESTERDAY!!

I don’t say that to scare any of ya’ll and if you have any kind of faith and are a believer that shouldn’t scare you but it should give you hope. And if you’re a believer you also know we’re living in some pretty scary times right now. We’re living in times where our faith is being tested with everything that is going on in the world, and at the end of the day it can leave us all feeling very confused.

But God is sill God.

We’ll never understand this…

Some things we'll just never understand....This side of Heaven!

I am not a news watcher nor do I really read the papers. Just learning about this devastation over the weekend. I will be praying for Nashville!

Great post. I am heartbroken for everyone in TN. While I'm at it I'm heartbroken for the people of Haiti. I could go on and on. And you're right, we won't understand it, but God is still a loving God and he is sovereign and worthy of our praise. Praying for the people in Nashville!

Good post! My brother lives in Nashville, however he lives closer to music rowe and was fortunate enough to have steared clear of this devastation.

Good reminder- that through it ALL, God is STILL God.

Isn't it awful?! I can't believe the devastation in N'ville....especially when we barely got any storms at all!

Great post...its definitely heartbreaking! I admit, with all of the storms, earthquakes, volcanos, oil spills, etc...I have to wonder if our God is coming soon!
