Storm Ompong landfalls around 1:30AM in Northern Luzon. It is signal number 1 here in Manila as I write but signal number 4 in Ilocos region. Many were sleepless because of the gust winds of 150KPH to 200KPH striking roofs and houses of Luzon.
They say storm can strengthen us — I say no.
He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.Mark 4:39
Our faith and values should dictate our response through the storm, not the other way around. When storm and our practice of faith come together they produce character and strength.
Pray, encourage one another, help those who are needy.
I speak strength to you in the midst of this stormy day.
