Light In A Deadly Tornado

Even the reporters choked up. What the monster tornado tore up in Moore, Oklahoma, tore at our hearts: houses gone, neighborhoods gone, schools gone, children-gone.
People were wandering the streets "like zombies," trying to figure out where their house was. Parents waited in the mud, looking for some shred of hope that their child was somehow alive beneath the rubble of their school. Children were in shelters, wondering if they'd ever see their parents again. I'll tell you, the photos, the stories, and the video images defied words. Some of them struck a pretty deep chord in my heart.
Like the team from Joplin, Missouri, hurrying to help people in a way only they could. A few years ago, it was part of their town that vanished in one of the deadliest twisters ever. They know how having your world erased in a moment feels.
from the Word of God in Hebrews 6:19, God says, "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."That's what the Bible says about Jesus. He's my one Safe Place. Storms have taken their toll to be sure, but I'm OK, because He's never let me go. I know He never will, because He hung on a cross for my sin and for yours.
See, these news stories remind us of how fragile life is, how much a storm can change things. Jesus offers you today, not a religion, but a relationship that anchors you forever. I want to invite you to join me at our website, where you can begin a relationship with Him. It's ANewStory.com and you'll find there the anchor that never moves.
