Help Is On The Way

Friday, as soon as I hit the “publish” button and sent my blog post out into the universe, I looked out the window to check on the rain that had been steadily falling …. little did I know while writing my blog post that the sudden downpour was causing flash flooding!

So much so that when I opened the front door to look out, the water was lapping at the threshold.

Time to get busy, time to call in the help.

Long story short our area was hit with 8 inches of rain in less than 2 hours.

For several hours we moved items “to higher ground” and away from the walls as my fellows tried to keep the waters at bay with a wet vac and towels.

Needless to say, nature may have won the battle, but not the war!

By the way, on the design wall is the quilt I referred to yesterday…unfinished…not exactly the best format to be showing off, but it is what it is.

Time does not allow me to further go into details. Bottom line, we have lots of cleanup to do and months of structure repairs. Needless to say, my studio is closed until further notice.

We are not without hope. Far from it!

If you know anything about me on a personal level, then you know that my hope is in Jesus.

While I may not understand things, especially the big picture, I trust Him for the next step.

Another thing you may or may not know about me is how much I love Christian music. For several months now Toby Mac’s song, “Help is On the Way” has been on the top of my playlist..I leave you with the lyrics and a link to the music video.

t may be midnight or midday
Never early, never late
He gon’ stand by what He claim
Lived enough life to say

I heard your heart
I see your pain
Out in the dark
Out in the rain
Feel so alone
Feel so afraid
I heard you pray in Jesus’ name

It may be midnight or midday
It’s never early, never late
He gon’ stand by what He claim
I’ve lived enough life to sayHelp is on the way (roundin’ the corner)
Help is on the way (comin’ for ya)
Help is on the way (yeah, yeah)
I’ve lived enough life to say
Help is on the way

Sometimes it’s days
Sometimes it’s years
Some face a lifetime of falling tears
But He’s in the darkness
He’s in the cold
Just like the morning, He always shows

It may be midnight or midday
It’s never early, never late
He gon’ stand by what He claim
I’ve lived enough life to sayHelp is on the way (roundin’ the corner)
Help is on the way (comin’ for ya)
Help is on the way (yeah, yeah)
I’ve lived enough life to say
Help is on the way

Well I’ve seen my share of troubles
But the Lord ain’t failed me yet
So I’m holding on to the promise y’all
That He’s rolling up His sleeves again

Said I’ve seen my share of troubles
But the Lord ain’t failed me yet
We’ll keep holding on to the promise y’all
That He’s rolling up His sleeves againDon’t you know it
(Rolling up his sleeves again)
I can see him rolling
(Rolling up, rolling up)
Help is coming
(Rolling up his sleeves again)

It may be midnight or midday
He’s never early, no never late
He gon’ stand by what He claim
I’ve lived enough life to say

It may be midnight or midday
It’s never early, never late
He gon’ stand by what He claim
I’ve lived enough life to say

Help is on the way
Help is on the way (roundin’ the corner)
Help is on the way

This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, confirming that “I’ve seen my share of troubles but the Lord ain’t failed me YET!”
