So. Hmm. It’s hard to know what to think or say about this currently happening flooding incident in Kingwood, TX and the greater Houston area. Some streets and homes are flooded again. It’s not as devastating as Hurricane Harvey two years ago, unless you are an unfortunate soul whose home or business is now flooded.
In May, St. Martha Catholic School flooded. I was working that day in the detached building across from the PreK hallway. For hours I counted bricks between the flood waters and the bottom edge of the PreK hallway windows to gauge our chance of flooding too. Our hallway survived the May flood, but not so sure about today, because I’m so sad to report that the school is currently flooding again. AGAIN!
Please pray for my city as you go about your day. Be thankful when you get in your car and drive on a clear road and when you pick up your cell and don’t worry about power to charge it. Offer a prayer when you relax in your favorite chair which wasn’t ruined from flood water. When you sleep in your own bed, and turn on your TV and every station isn’t covering “Flash Flood Emergency” warnings, think about what you’re doing with your day, because a lot of people here are going to experience heartbreak and stress as they rebuild. And, be happy when your children are able to go to school because it didn’t flood!
I continue to pray for all of this mess. I also wonder what purpose this new devastation holds, I’m not gonna lie. But in the end, I’m going to continue to praise my mighty and loving Lord God. Here is my prayer of praise from parts of Daniel, Chapter 3:
52 Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our ancestors, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever; And blessed is your holy and glorious name, praiseworthy and exalted above all for all ages. 57 Bless the Lord, all you works of the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 59 You heavens, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 60 All you waters above the heavens, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 62 Sun and moon, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 64 Every shower and dew, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 68 Dew and rain, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 82 All you mortals, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever. 89 Give thanks to the Lord, who is good, whose mercy endures forever.” Amen
