A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART

TL A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART (17)

1-27 PRAYERS FOR MY FRIENDS IN THE EAST

When it seems as though we are brought to a halt, by an act of God or by circumstances in life, may we always remember that God is the architect, the Master of our lives.  He is the one who performs miracles, great and small, every day.  If we lean fully on Him, we will be brought through all situations and shine brightly on the other side.

The East Coast already looks like a snow globe thanks to winter storm Juno, but the worst is yet to come.  Thousands of flight cancellations and everyone is required to stay off the streets except emergency personnel.  It sounds so scary!  I just want you to know that little ol’ Linda in Kansas is praying for you.

 Lord and Master of all seasons,  I pray for everyone affected by winter storm Juno.  Protect them every one from the elements, for Father it sounds so very dangerous.  Protect the animals as well I pray.  May they instinctively find shelter from the brutal cold and strong winds.  May the sick have enough medicine and may the elderly have enough blankets and food.  Bless families everywhere with real moments during this time to have conversations where normally they wouldn’t.  Help them to make the best of this situation and reconnect as a family unit.  May everyone show genuine concern for everyone else during this time, and may we all be better people after the storm passes than we were before it came.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Major impacts from the storm are expected in the Big Apple.  I pray that everyone has shelter and all the animals have shelter.  They are calling this storm historical because it will leave some areas with up to 2 feet of snow in a very short time.  There will be blizzard conditions and winds are expected to gust up to 65 MPH so it is definitely deadly out there.  Please stay indoors. 

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…. In spring, summer and fall people have sort of an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.  – Ruth Stout

I pray you have enough to sustain you and that you do not experience power outages or any other devastating conditions.  I read stories and saw photographs of empty shelves in grocery stores and very long lines at checkout counters.

So…  If nobody’s supposed to go out unless they are emergency personnel, how do all these TV people in N.Y. get to work to do their anchor jobs???  Huh…  huh???  Yeah – good question, right???  They had better not shut Fox News down – I mean – it would be like – well – like I have DISH or something!  LOL – I had to say it!

May you have everything you need to ride out the storm, and may God Himself see you through it.  ❤

  1. Thank You Linda for the Sweet Thoughts and Prayers . Most of my Family and Friends are in Ma and also on Cape Cod. I join you in prayer for all areas .It does bring out a closeness in family and neighbors. Husbands and wives will have stories to tell as well about babies born in the storm. Nine months from now there will be a “flurry” of new baby announcements to go out as well! (Giggle)

    My brother reports 9″ last night alone west of Boston. May God see everyone thru the storm and the aftermath when it melts.
