We've Got the Power

Our nemesis, hurricane Ike, came just north of Prospect, KY on Sunday afternoon. No rain, but lots of wind. Winds as high as 75 MPH were reported. Trees and branches down everywhere around the city of Louisville. As of late on Monday there were as many as 215,000 plus homes without power.

Many thousands are still without electricity. Thankfully, we now have power here "under the steeple." The clean up is under way. Lots of leaves and branches to pick up. We have invited all the "powerless" from our church family to come for dinner tonight (potentially that could be a huge crowd, depending on your definition). Looking forward to a fun time.

The wind is an amazing thing. Sometimes a gentle breeze is so calming, and a blessing on a warm day. While at other times a strong wind can cause much damage and frustration. All of this is guided by the mighty hand of our Sovereign God. He is so awesome.

"The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit." John 3:8
