This weekend we faced another incredible, terrifying display of the power of Nature, and the effects that it has on people’s lives. An entire town in Kansas was destroyed by a tornado with up to 200mph winds. Entire houses ripped to shreds.
My heart goes out to the families that have lost so much. And the people whose lives are forever changed. I know that God can bring back hope and restoration to these families.
One of the things about devastation is that you have an opportunity to rebuild from the ground up, instead of remodeling and trying to work around the already existing structures, trying not to mess up the carpets, scuff the walls, match the furniture. All that stuff. I know this probably sounds really crass but it’s true.
What do we need to have devastated in our lives? What are we trying to build around, but we need to let it just be destroyed. I think we have some sacred cows that need to be butchered and it’s only when we let God do the butchering that we can really begin to rebuild.
Personal, family, traditions, churches, what do we need to have devastated?
