Refuge from the flood—a report from the Philippines
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
I live near Manila, in the Philippines. Everyone thought that Typhoon Ketsana, which began to develop in late September, would be just like other storms of the past. It was not. Although we didn’t have a lot of strong winds, we received an unusual amount of rain. Now that the typhoon has gone, some people don’t even know how to begin rebuilding, and it could take a while before everyone can return to their normal way of life.
But I know God will guide this process of restoration because even during the storm, I witnessed and felt only an outpouring of love. God, Love, remains, “ ‘the same yesterday, and to-day, and forever;’ . . . .” I’d like to share my experience.
