Lake Michigan in Grand Haven, MI the day after Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast.

A devastating storm hit the East Coast with the aftermath felt the next day along the west coast of Michigan. It’s amazing how a storm hundreds of miles away can be felt here (to a much lesser degree).

We don’t understand why God lets storms like this happen. One thing we do now for sure, God is in control.

Psalm 107:25 tell us, “For He (God) spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves.”

Then Psalm 107:29 says, “He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.”

Is God trying to get our attention? Have we, as a nation, been moving too far away from Him? Is He saying, “Hey! It’s time you get your focus back where it belongs.”?

I do worry about the United States. We are wandering too far away from the Christian principles upon which this country was founded. We need to wake up and return to God.

It’s very possible this storm was our wake up call (again). How are we going to respond?
