My prayers go out to those in Joplin, MO and surrounding areas hit by the tornado. The images and videos coming out are shocking and horrifying. However I am confident Americans in Joplin will rise to the occasion, and out of the devastation we'll see incredible stories of hope... God is good all the time!
BE MERCIFUL and gracious to me, O God, be merciful and gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You; yes, in the shadow of Your wings will I take refuge and be confident until calamities and destructive storms are passed. ~Psalm 57:1
