It continues to be an intense time here on the east coast of Australia, as I shared recently in Australia’s on Fire…you can help!
We have all been on tender hooks, waiting to see what pathway these out of control monsters will take…
We have Rural Fire Service apps, receiving constant updates & warnings of the fires near us & watching the areas where our loved ones live. This plays havoc with our emotional energy when there is a constant threat to lives, loved ones & properties…
Within the last few days my dear parents were advised to evacuate their home, as the fiery ferocious offspring of the beast flew across the river racing up the escarpment headed for their village.
I sent out a prayer request to our prayer groups for God to be with them & their fellow villagers giving them safe passage through the encroaching breath of the fiery monster…
After quickly packing their precious items into their sedan they headed for safety, driving through the dense choking smoke & falling ash to my youngest sister’s home 90 minutes away, out of the Danger zone, as highways closed behind them.
This was a huge undertaking for them at their age & state of health. But God’s hand was upon them & they arrived safely…as did their fellow villagers to their destinations…
My other sister (I have two sisters, I’m the eldest) who lives in another region, further inland, had two out of control fires bearing down on her village from opposing directions, one sending spores of fiery embers ahead into her yard…an intense situation that has now been bought under control.
Waiting & Watching
At the moment we are waiting & watching to see if my parents home will be consumed by the fiery beast, it’s a game with this beast at the moment as firefighters gain the upper hand, clamping it down only to lose control again as the beast breaks its shackles…(the outcome shared in Trust, Release & Rest)
We are praying for all the brave men & women fighting to protect lives & properties in the furnaces of hell…& for rain to fall across our land…Please join me in continuing prayer for the following promise…
“The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain for your land…”
I have been truly encouraged by the deep concern expressed by those of you who join me here in our time of tea & reflection together.
Thank you, you’re very special, I greatly appreciate your encouraging words & continued prayer support.
Australia is deeply hurting, Australians are dying & all Australians, including State & Federal leaders are doing their very best in this absolutely unprecedented apocalyptic Fire crisis but we need dousing rain across the land!
Until next time,
