The mother of all storms

He has an innocuous name. Harvey. But don’t confuse his mild-mannered description with weakness. Nope, ol Harv plans on wrecking havoc the likes of which Texas has never seen. Which reminds me.

Water. Lots of it. Flooding. Massive flooding is predicted. Hard to imagine that lives will not be spared. Some will doubt, and not heed the call to flee. Kinda like in the days of Noah. People laughed. They mocked, They ignored the warning to their own peril.

So today, God proves His truthfulness and reliability regarding Himself. He promised NOT to destroy the earth again through water, and if we pay attention, He is rather gracious in this. Since our lives are accounted at 70-80 years avg, we see that He has overextended His goodness to us, for then, His patience was lifted after 120 years, so it is obvious our lives are saturated with goodness for our entirety.

There is something to weigh which is much more serious though than another flood, and that is: we have to do with the living God. Go ahead, don’t believe it. It will not change one bit the fact that He is true and every man a liar.  And as a reminder, the ark of Noah was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.

So if you think God is akin to a rabbit like Harvey, go for it. But don’t blame people like me who have sounded the loud and clear trumpet of truth.

    People tend to forget about God when good things happen to them, thinking it’s all of their own doing. Yet, when bad things happen the first response is often “why me God”?

    Prayers for the folks in Harvey’s path that they stay safe and clear of danger. It is a strange name for a hurricane though!

  2. Well said, Colorstorm. I do pray people will heed the warnings and that no one gets hurt.
    God is good indeed, quite the gentleman, but just the same, I wouldn’t try standing in His path. A good storm is just a peek at His power.

    I remember this other storm and people running down to the beach to watch it come in. A couple of paramedics got tired of trying to warn people, so they just got a magic marker and started writing people’s social security numbers on their arms for easy identification and body retrieval. A couple people got the message at least.

    How do you know the ark was built by amateurs? The Bible tells us nothing of how Noah made a living before he built it. He and his sons could have been professional shipbuilders.

      Tkx clyde, but I’m pretty sure there was no need for building an ark before.

      The context of amateur/professional lies in the ability to keep it afloat. The Titanic was boasted as sinkproof, that’s all.

    I spent much of my youth on the Gulf Coast. Been through several hurricanes. That is one reason I don’t live down there anymore. Got sick and tired of the storms.

    I can’t say where I live is much safer, however. If we ever have a nuclear war, it won’t be safe to be anywhere near our nation’s capital.

    With respect to hurricanes, we are luckier these days. We get warning. The Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900 was a Category 4 storm, with winds of up to 145 mph, and it came as a complete surprise. So it managed to kill between 6,000 and 12,000 people.

    What was the amazing thing about that storm? People moved back onto Galveston and started rebuilding.
