Alabama Needs Your Prayers

This state (AL and GA and MS) need your prayers in a mighty way!  Devastation has struck the state due to the tornado's that rips through yesterday. My hearts is heavy for those who have lost friends, families and their homes.  But particularly the students in Tuscaloosa...the parents who are wondering where their children are!  It must be such a helpless situation but even as helpless as we all fell there is HOPE in Christ. Psalm 31:24 - 'Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD'.  He knows every details of this storm and where every person and child is!  I just ask that you lift up these kids who are experiencing this and trying to regroup themselves with loss and destruction all around them!  Tuscaloosa, Cullman, Pleasant Grove and many many more places have been hugely impacted and even flattened.  I just know that our prayers are needed!  The more pictures that I see the heavier my heart gets.

My friend Diedra posted this verse and I thought it was perfect reminder:
Luke 8:21b 'He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him.
