Sony’s Thoughts: Reflections on the Week

This has been a rough week for a lot of people. Many have lost houses and/or loved ones in the tornado which swept across a large portion of the south. People have been stranded due to flooding, and I’m sure have had a lot of damage from that as well. I’ve heard of several car wrecks which happened this week, at least one of which claimed a life–that of renowned Times Square Church pastor, David Wilkerson. My heart goes out to those who are going through these times of trial and heartache.

At the same time, I’m reminded of Christ’s admonition to “…look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28). If we and our loved ones who have gone before were servants of Christ, we will see them again really soon. While we’re still on this earth, we’ll miss them terribly and at times may even wish God would hasten the day that we get to see them but God has left you here for a reason. There is still a work for you to do and you must continue in that work.

I pray the Believers in Alabama and the surrounding states which were affected by the tornado will have the strength to say with Job, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him” (Job 13:15). For those of us who have not gone through these terrible storms, let’s lift up in prayer those who have a long road ahead of them putting their lives back together. In the words of Andrae Crouch:

I’ve got confidence God is gonna see me through
No matter what the case may be, I know He’s gonna fix it for me
