Keep Calm and Pray

I was still in the office when the news of the earthquake that hit Visayas escaped the internet. I instantly texted my mom to check if they're okay. Turned out that they're even in some resort, checking the place for a social event in their company.

Good thing they're okay. And good thing they're home. Mom said she had a difficult time chasing after Boom2,  my ever stubborn dog. As of the moment, she is lighting up a candle (a blessed candle from Maria Candelaria Church, Pardon, as she fondly calls it.) She laid the bible open at Psalm 91.

The aftershocks stopped.


Let me share to you Psalm 91.

God our Protector
Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,                                                                                      whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him,                                        "You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in You I trust."                                  He will  keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases.                              He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care;                                                      his faithfulness will protect and defend you.                                                                             You need not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day or                                       the plagues that strike in the dark or the evils that kill in daylight.                                                                                                 A thousand may fall dead beside you,                                                                                   ten thousand all around you, but you will not be harmed.                                                           You will look and see how the wicked are punished.                                                            You have made the Lord your defender,                                                                              the Most High your protector,                                                                                                 and so no disaster will strike you,                                                                                          no violence will come near your home.                                                                                   God will put his angels in charge of you to protect you wherever you go.                                  They will hold you up with their hands to keep you from hurting your feet on the stones.                 You will trample down lions and snakes, fierce lions and poisonous snakes.                        God says, "I will save those who love me and will protect those who acknowledge me as Lord. When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them.              I will rescue them and honor them. I will reward them with long life; I will save them."

For everything that is occurring, God has a reason for each. We may comprehend them not, now or tomorrow. We can do nothing but take it and pray for the strength and courage. Whatever His reasons may be, may we be able to do the things that He wants us to do, flow freely to His tides. May we know the things that we need to do to follow His will.

And to those who are adding lame, unnecessary, negative comments. May we take the initiative to ignore them. We need not entertain more evil thoughts.
