Thinking of You

Family, friends, supporters in Oklahoma:

Our continuous prayers are with you. We’ve been keeping up with all that has happened since last night and will continue to do so. Know that we love you and are here for you, and are praying that the weather calms and ceases. Know that not only people from Austria, but people in countries all over the world are lifting you up and covering you in prayer. A favorite verse that keeps coming to mind is one that we have memorized in both English and German. It is one we have said to ourselves in the midst of hardship, and as short as it may be, I hope that its words bring you relief, hope, comfort, strength, and peace. It comes from Job (Hiob) 38:18, when God answers Job from “out of the storm”:

“Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the Earth?” (“Hast du den Überblick über die ganze Weite der Erde?”)

The expanses of the Earth are unimaginable, and the size of the Lord who created this Earth is indescribable. Just as God answered Job out of the storm, so will He answer Oklahoma out of this one. Love you all.
