DEVOTION: Toppled

DEVOTION: Toppled
Unbelievably the enormous cruise ship was toppled in a matter of hours and thankfully rescue for hundreds was possible. A small commuter plane suddenly fell from the sky and toppled upside down into the waters... but miraculously the visiting family and pilot were pulled safely from the sea. Tornado like winds tore through many areas and totally destroyed homes and woods, but with amazing grace the inhabitants of the devastation were found alive.
  Praise the Lord!  "I will put my laws in their hearts and I will write them in their minds."         O God help me to cling to your words of promise and your presence of peace "through it all".  No matter what swirls around us on the outside, your love ...your grace.. your goodness... your peace... your hope... your joy fills us up inside.  Our world can be toppled in an instant yet nothing can separate us from your presence of perfect love.  Help me convey this hope to those around me.  Forgive my doubt and fear and empower me with goodness and grace so I am filled up day by day with strength and mercy.  Even in the midst of total desolation, You are with us...in us...around us... filling us up.  Trusting in you, we can withstand being Toppled.
