What if Your blessings come through raindrops? What if trials of this life, the rain, the storms, the hardest nights are Your mercies in disguise?

A lot of people are suffering. A lot of people have lost homes. A lot of lives have been claimed. But you, having the opportunity to read this, are blessed to be in a situation better than those people in need. Now is the time to move and get involved. Please help in any means convenient to you. You can donate cash, clothes, blankets, canned goods, cooked rice, bottles of water, medicines, etc.

I can’t find a list of evacuation centers in the provinces so if you have a link, please do inform me (comment/reply to this post or leave a message).

If doing any of these isn’t possible at the moment, you can simply take a minute to kneel down and pray. A prayer goes a long way.

“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” James 2:17

Father, You are King over the flood.
Stay safe everyone! #PrayForThePhilippines
