Protection and healing during hurricane

I was planning to visit Houston, Texas, for several weeks to help family friends with the birth of their second child. Before the trip, I had quieted my thought and listened in prayer for God’s direction and guidance about the best time to arrive. My friends were also in the process of moving and selling their house, and through prayer, it became clear to me that I should arrive enough in advance of the baby’s due date to help them with this as well. 

My visit turned out to have been timed perfectly. My friends had been working with a Christian Science practitioner throughout the pregnancy, relocation, and job change. And with the practitioner’s prayerful support, we witnessed God’s precise and loving guidance through the birth of the baby and the listing and quick sale of the house. I was so grateful to have been able to open my thought to God’s message and to listen for the right time to support my friends.

A week after the birth of their child, however, heavy bands of rain from Hurricane Harvey stalled over our area of Houston. Many inches of water fell in a short period of time, quickly flooding creeks, streets, and many houses. The father of the family had left town the day before the rain, on a last-minute house-hunting trip to where the family was relocating. Truly, none of us had expected so much rain. When the water level rose to within a few feet of the house, and the forecast called for continued rain, the mother and I started preparing to evacuate.
