I posted not long ago about my thoughts on how a simple downpour can paralyze the metro.
Last Friday, I was one of the unlucky, or maybe just one of the blessed, ones who were caught in the frenzy of a downpour and flooding. I left work hoping against all hope that even with the flashes of lightning and thunder I can make it to my sister’s workplace and then home. There was no rain, just lightning and thunder. I guess I cannot completely escape the week without really getting showered on. Downpour is okay, I like rain… but flooding and getting stranded, ugh!!!
There were 3 blessings that night that I am very grateful for.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:6-9 NIV)
