This is a photo of one of our friend’s home that burned on Thursday night!
The home is a total loss.
Praise the Lord the family was able to get out of the house safely.
Unfortunately the family pets did not.
This is one of those events that make you ask, “Why God?”. Why this family?
They are at church every time the doors are open and involved in EVERYTHING! This Sunday, he will be ordained as a deacon.
Without going into details, they have endured much over the last 9 months. And now this???
Bad things do happen to good people. Even godly people.
This family has a faith that is strong. And now they are having to endure yet another trial. But they know our God is bigger than ANYTHING!
How do they know? Just look at the message He left them:
This is a hymnal found open amidst all the rubble. Opened to page 20, “Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above”!
Coincidence? I think NOT.
Please pray for the Rucker family as they praise God during this storm. Especially for the children as they mourn the loss of their pets.
They lost almost everything in the fire, but not their faith. And it will see them through!
Sing praise to God Who reigns above, the God of all creation,
The God of power, the God of love, the God of our salvation.
With healing balm my soul is filled and every faithless murmur stilled:
To God all praise and glory.
