I, like most, was appalled as I watched this destruction, and loss.
I, like most turned to God, and united with others in prayer.
Prayer of comfort, prayer of protection, prayer of peace.
I was amazed to see the nation turn to prayer for relief.
How quickly we quit.
How quickly we went back to life, and relying on our own strength.
Today, I pause and remember when this tragedy turned a nation to their true strength, their true God.
I feel our nation needs this devotion now.
I, for one, will remember.
