We have been having revival through sickness, thunder storms, floods and even tornadoes. One family in the church had severe damage to their house and very nearly lost their lives. I am sure it is one of the hardest things they have ever been through. But their daughter and son in law that rode out the storm with them came to church and gave their hearts to Christ the next night. Praise God! Trust me, that Mom and Dad were shouting the victory that night in spite of the havoc of the storm.
There is a lot of misery down here in Mississippi right now with the floods and tornadoes but as of right now there have been no deaths from the storms. As I just told you there have been at least two saved because of the storms so we praise God even in the midst of things we do not understand! No deaths and at least two with eternal life! Not too bad!
I found out just about the time I called people into the altar Sunday night that there was a tornado on the ground very near the church. I could just imagine the BoggsMobile being tossed around like a toy in the parking lot smashing everybody's cars. But we put all of that in God's hands a long time ago. Everything we "own" belongs to God, right? If he allows "our belongings" to be destroyed in a tornado then he is allowing it to happen to HIS own stuff. God knows what He is doing, I do not have a clue and I take comfort from that.
We are very thankful that things are no worse than they are. We are very thankful there were not more injuries. We are very thankful that we did not experience any damage personally. We are very thankful that God is using hurt to bring blessing. There are always many things to be thankful for!
Thank you for praying for me and Kelly Jo. We are gaining every day. I sure am glad that I usually stop every day and thank God for good heath and abundant strength and a strong voice. Since I have been thankful in the past, I do not feel near as bad when I beg him to help when I am as weak as water. Thank God he knows my frame and remembers that I am dust! He knows how to help right on time.
Praise God for the good revival. Pastor Jason Merritt and his folks have been having church whether we help or not. I told them that they do not need me. They just brought me here in order to have an excuse to have revival! It has been great. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
