What If I lost everything?

A friend of mine Brandon Ramey wrote a song this past week that made me stop and listen.
He didnt title it but I titled it my "what if i lost everything". "The epic outbreak" or the tornadoes that
made history tore through North Alabama wrecking homes/lives/families this past week.
It was devastating. I live in Huntsville Alabama so the worst we saw here was hail but some parts
had some trees down on homes even. We lost power and our house in particular for a total of 7 days.
As each day went by my very talented outdoorsman of a husband would make us food on our propane
grill but after the meat went bad due to lack of thought on my part to put it in the cooler we resulted
in a lot of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. This no power thing began to have its benefits when the
sun would go down and without the light polution we actually could see the stars.... It was beautiful.
In the quietness of the nights (without our fans by our beds to allow us peaceful sleep in noise) I laid in bed
and thought about what had just happened. Having no clue of the disasters because we couldnt really see the
footage without power I could only image the loss Tuscaloosa was having and a little town Phil Campbell just
to name a few of the places that were going through this tragedy.
What if it had been me that lost my house... or heaven forbid, my family.
I would hope I would go on being the peaceful warrior that God has made me to be telling others that the name
of Jesus is bigger... that the name of Jesus is everything we need. So I can never loose everything because I
always have Jesus.. and he is EVERYTHING i need.
I was challenged. I was challenged to no longer sit down when i am tired but to get up and make the best of my
time. Now I know I will have moments of going through the same routine I have lived day in and day out but I want
to remember. I dont want to forget that I am not promised tomorrow.
God please be with those who are hurting.
God please be with those who are rejoicing saying this is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

" Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
Dueteronomy 31:6
