The Outcry of My Heart

Since the F5 tornado struck Moore, Oklahoma on Monday afternoon, I have been keeping up with the news. As I watched the footage seeing pile after pile of junk and thinking how each pile use to be someones home, business, or livelihood, my heart broke. One of the worst news casts I watched was about a school where children who had sought shelter in the basement of the school were trapped by the crumbling walls and then drowned after a water-main break flooded the space they were trapped in. (News Article) After hearing story after tragic story, hope began to break through. Every tragic story seems to have it's miracle counterpart. I've found that the best stories are those of love and sacrifice. (The Love of Teachers) Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.- John 15:13 Those who have risked there lives, or given them up for their neighbors are true heroes. For those people, I am truly grateful. 

Matthew 10:42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

Psalm 90:13-15
Relent, Lord! How long will it be?

Have compassion on your servants.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.
