It’s a new day!! Go out and DO what God created you to do! And do it with all your might! Go out there make it amazing!!

Ephesians 5:1-2 says, “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Matthew 25:40 says, “The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

“Look for the helpers.”

Mr. Rogers said that when he was little and he would see something that would frighten him, his mother would tell him to “always look for the helpers.” Even though there would be something scary and awful happening, look for those who are helping!
That story has come to my mind in the past few days. “Look for the helpers.” It also got me thinking…what can we do to help?! We’re not first responders nor do we live close enough to help many of these people but with today’s technology we can all do something!   First of all, prayer is number 1! Then we can drop items off at ‘drop-off stations’ where supplies are being taken or we can donate money online. There is something that we can do!
I’m gonna have some info below if you would like to help out! Also, look at the ‘helpers’ below. Be encouraged!!

1000 Year Flood…

At least that’s what it’s being called. But here in West Virginia we call it deadly and devastating. The rain fell and kept falling for hours and about 9 inches of rain, maybe more, fell and caused rivers, lakes and creeks to overflow their banks very quickly!
At least 23 people have lost their lives. Ages range from 4 years old to the elderly and all in between. Homes, businesses, churches, property, schools, vehicles and more have been severely damaged, lost or completely destroyed. Thousands of people have been affected. The counties greatest effected are Greenbrier, Kanawha, Nicholas and Clay. Just today the president declared that West Virginia could receive federal assistance and help because of the far-reaching effects of this terrible disaster.
Following are pictures from news outlets here in WV: WSAZ, WCHS, and WVAH. Also pictures from a citizen of the town of Richwood in Nicholas County, Jeromy Rose. My uncles home in Richwood was also destroyed. They have pretty much lost everything as well. The Greenbrier Resort in Greenbrier County and David and Erica Babbitt in Clendenin. They completely lost their home and everything inside. But they and their family are safe, so we thank the Lord for keeping them protected!

These are only a few of the many pictures that show what has happened over the last few days. There are so many more pictures.
But I ask that you will pray for our beloved West Virginia. Pray for peace and restoration. The people here are resilient and will come back stronger than ever!! But it truly is only through prayer and the power of God. I praise Jesus that He has protected and preserved countless lives during this time!

Happy 153rd Birthday!

Today is West Virginia’s 153rd Birthday!!Our great state was officially born on June 20, 1863!!

West Virginia’s birth was during one of our nations greatest times of turmoil, the American Civil War. North against South, brother against brother, father against son, families were being ripped apart by war.
Life was very different in the western part of Virginia. It was a hard life but people in western Virginia, now West Virginia, were resilient and they weren’t afraid to stand up for what they believed in. It of course took great courage for those men to stand up and do what needed to be done to bring forth our freedom.
The heritage of our state is great! Life has never been easy for the people of this state but they never gave up or give up. I thank the Lord for those that God used in that time of pain, sorrow and suffering. They passed down a legacy of tenacity and true patriotism to all the generations that have followed since.
For me, to live in West Virginia is to love West Virginia. When you drive into the state, it’s like the mountains open up and wrap around you like great, strong arms. Hugging you and bringing safety, protection and peace as you drive deeper in.
Then when you drive up the beautiful Appalachian mountains you can see the true beauty of God’s mighty creation. At last, you are finally rewarded with the majestic views and it literally takes your breath away. Tears often come to my eyes and my heart swells with how blessed my family and I are to call West Virginia home!
The presence of God is strong in these mountains and hills. Even right now awakening is taking place in Mingo and Logan counties. Soon this awakening will spread to the whole state and all of our mountains and hills will be aflame for Jesus!!
I encourage you to come and visit West Virginia! Experience the hospitality of our people, our amazing history, the astounding beauty, and everything our state has to offer!
