The enormity of this flood here in Houston reminds me of the great tribulation revealed to John in the book of revelation. It’s beyond all doubt a tip of the iceberg, yet it stands as a defining moment for the prophesied quandaries to come especially to those quantifying “the word” as a bunch of fables and myths. Without the need of going in depth on how unearthly this event seems to be, I hope folks get the disguised messaged masked in this natural disaster.
Some are fortunate not to be affected while others aren’t. Nonetheless, it remains cataclysmic based on the forecast of more rainfall throughout the week. Amazingly, vast amount of people volunteered to provide aid to those in dire need, which has in fact positively affected the city as a whole.
Hurricane Harvey has indeed taken some lives with it, but more lives would have been lost if not for the love shared amongst people without the bias consideration of race, religion, or ethnical background. Times like this are sedative, it makes us look beyond our differences. It steals our comfort (our homes, belongings, etc.) yet brings us together as one. Driving tears and causing pain, at the same time reminding us of how fragile we really are (without God).
Watching people climb rooftops as a means of escaping the engulfing flood was really disheartening. Roads where cars would pass on a normal day has become a sea of boats. The safest place to hide in a home is now a roof instead of a room. Peals of thunder coupled with deafening lightening strikes setting buildings on fire. Helicopters flying around with ropes trying to rescue the few they can. In all entirety, Harvey is devastating.
The subdivision I reside remains unaffected. Thank God for that. But my prayer goes to those victimized by this excruciating dilemma. May God see us all through.
