The Storm Passed us By
29 August 2012 / 12 Elul 5772
It has been seven years since Katrina hit,
and we were bracing for Isaac Today, but
thankfully God spared us.
The following is from a previous message that I
and may God bless you through it.
My Little Justus
during Hurricane Katrina on
29 August 2005 /
24-25 AV 5765.
My youngest Son had just turned three
a month before the Storm hit.
My little Justus was trying to be so brave
when his oldest sister turned to take a picture of him
while he was standing beside me
in the doorway of our home on that
The original picture is much clearer,
but his eyes and face were red from crying,
and he was holding his lips real tight
to keep from crying in front of the camera.
He, along with his six year old
was absolutely terrified when the trees started falling
all around us during the worst part
of the Storm.
They became visibly upset
when an over 100 foot pine tree
fell across our drive way and blocked us in,
and my little boys were begging me to call for
When another pine tree went through the roof and
water started pouring into the kitchen and a bedroom,
all seven of my children became
It was then I realized that we could actually die in this Storm;
but I also had full confidence that
ONLY if it was God's will.
My Husband had not been with us due
to the war,
but two weeks later, soon before
He was to arrive home,
my oldest daughter asked my little Justus,
you going to tell daddy
that you were a big boy during the Storm?"
He hung his little head and looked to the ground,
and with an ashamed look on his face
he looked up and said,
"No, I was little."
Such a profound
statement from the mouth of my baby!
He made me realize just how small all of us
really are in the sight of God!
I can honestly say
that fear was not with me
on that very devastating Day,
but only a great love and concern
for my dear children.
My response to the terror of the Storm
was to call upon the LORD;
and God's peace was noticeably with us.
I thank God that He heard my most earnest plea!
All of us NEED the LORD in our
and HE IS the only One who truly
in the midst of that Storm.
God will use the trials and
tribulations of this Life
to show us how we desperately need
and I pray you won't reject His
God's love will forever live in
those who live for Him,
but you must turn from your sin and
worship only Him.
I hope you are truly looking to love and
The Devil and his men will lead you
and fill your heart with hate,
in order to separate you far away
and those who love Him too.
Satan IS THE ONE WHO WANTS YOU DEAD,
so he can destroy your soul in Hell.
I Am pleading, don't give into his
lies and deceit.
Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living
IS the ONLY WAY to Heaven;
and He gave His Life so we could
Live for all Eternity
in the presence of the Eternal King!
Blessed be the Name
of my LORD and Saviour,
All praise, honor, glory, and power be unto the One
who sits upon the Throne! And unto
forever and ever Amen!

The Last Day of
the Feast of Unleavened Bread
I Am reminded of an encounter that
one of my four
daughters had with a woman who had come to our home to drop off some fresh
My little Mary, who was also only
three years old at the time, looked up at this woman whom she had never met before, and quite innocently asked, "Are you going to
The woman was totally taken aback at
such a profound question coming from the mouth of my sweet baby, and all she
could say was, "I hope so." And I Am sure that meeting had to be a
"valley of decision" for her...
"Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the
press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of
decision: for the Day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision."
I encourage you to go and read the
whole passage from your Holy Bible to understand the significance of these Final
Days in which we are living...
