As the sun sets tonight here in Wilmington it is sunny and calm but, tomorrow Tropical Storm Hanna will come though our area. It appears we will get some rain and wind but nothing too serious. However, behind this storm is Ike a Major Hurricane. Everyone is interested in the path of the storm. Why, because they want to know how it will affect them personally. When we hear that there will be layoffs at work and our first thought is ...will it be me? It's only natural but at the same time we should be praying and thinking about others. Today pray for the people in the Caribbean that may be in the path of Ike. Pray for people who are losing their jobs, going through hard times, in the hospital. Pray and think about others today. Remind yourself that it's not always about me. Jesus is our example. He died for us. He who had no sin died for us who were born in sin. We must think of, pray for, reach out to others.
Colossians 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving
