Sixteen years ago today, 2,996 people were killed during the September 11 attacks.
Today, we are feeling the power of now, Tropical Storm Irma with strong winds and heavy rain damaging buildings, knocking down trees and wiping out power.
Philippians 4:4 tells us to Rejoice in the Lord always.
So, on a day when many may feel sad because of the loss of life on 9/11, on a day when many may feel scared as the winds blow and the lights flicker,
I will rejoice!
Despite attacks from abroad, and political slip-ups at home, we are still The United States of America.
Therefore, I will rejoice!
Through the wind and the rain, I know the rainbow of the Lord is on its way. Therefore, I will rejoice!
I serve a God that is bigger than a terrorist attack, bigger than a President, bigger than any storm, and bigger than my worry and my fear; Therefore, I will rejoice!
So, choose to rejoice in the Lord always, and know that everything will be all right.
