PEACE IN THE STORM


Adam Hamilton tells the story of leading a team down to Bay St. Louis to help gut houses after Katrina. They were assigned to a woman who brick house was completely inundated and they were asked to gut a two-story garage. In the room above the garage were literally hundreds and hundreds of dolls this woman had collected. They carefully removed them all and the mold-covered interior of the room. When they finished, he talked with the owner who said they had stayed for the storm because in all of their years the water had never reached them. But the storm came and flood waters rose. They like so many receded into the attic and there they waited the storm out. They could hear a tornado which spun off from the storm and traveled across the street from their house. This grandmother said it was absolutely terrifying. Meanwhile, the house next door which belonged to her daughter had washed away. And then she said, "We’re were terrified but this one thing I knew: I belong to God. I did not know how this was going to work out but I knew my life was in His hands." She knew that she was a child of God, that she was loved by God and that gave her peace in the midst of the storm.
