Cyclone Yasi

Dear friends,
I'm sure many of you know of the monster cyclone about to hit the North Queensland coast in the next 16 hours.
It is the biggest cyclone to ever hit Australia, and we are no strangers to tropical cyclones every summer, so this is quite frightening.
Our little town will be affected badly. I am asking you to pray for us all, every one of us facing this disaster. It is now Category 5, and we are to prepare for Category 3 or 4 to hit our little town.
I have friends in towns up here that are as scared as I, and we are all joining in prayer for each other. 
In our own home we have battened down what we can, and will lock ourselves in the most secure room of the house. We have glass louvre windows all around the house, and these are of great concern to us as the wind already whistles up through them, but with a cyclone...
Pray. Just pray for all of us affected in North Queensland. We have been told we will receive 1,000 ml of rain in our town - that is unfathomable to me. 

You can track the cyclone HERE throughout the coming hours,
God bless us all,
Jenny

Oh, thinking of you and all other quilters in the area. Hope all remains well through the storm and you are all safe and sound!

In the USA we are having snow storms to deal with.

SewLindaAnn said...

I will be praying for you and all the people in that area. I've no idea of cyclones, never had more than hurricanes up North (New York). Please let us in blogland out here know how everything is from time to time when you can.

Allie said...

You know I'm on my knees, darling girl - update us when you can.

Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. Matthew 8:24-26

Jenny-girl, I know you're afraid. I am too. And Jesus knows you're afraid. I can almost hear Him say "why are you so afraid?" in the most gentle and loving tones. When the wind howls, He loves you. When it's calm, He loves you. I'm as sure of this as I am of anything. Cling to the knowledge that He loves you, He sees you, He hears you and is right there with you. I know I'll be clinging to it for you, as I pray for you. Love you, my dear girl.

What a pretty house Jenny, I love those windows. Not something I have seen in the states. We will be keeping you and those in Australia in our prayers.

1000 ml of rain does that equal 40 inches? If so that is crazy! Be safe!

Agneta said...

Oh, the news are so worrying! Even here in Sweden we have had lots of info on Yasi.
Wish you could leave for a safer area. Anyway, bunker up on fresh water, and get batteries for flashlight.
Thinking of you, hope to hear from you as the cyclone leaves, hopefully without any greater damage.

Psalms 91:1 (NASB) He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide
in the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalms 91:2 (NASB) I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, My
God, in whom I trust!"
Psalms 91:3 (NASB) For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the
trapper, And from the deadly pestilence.
Psalms 91:4 (NASB) He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings
you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
Psalms 91:5 (NASB) You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the
arrow that flies by day;
Psalms 91:6 (NASB) Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the
destruction that lays waste at noon.
Psalms 91:7 (NASB) A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at
your right hand; But it shall not approach you.
Psalms 91:8 (NASB) You will only look on with your eyes, And see the
recompense of the wicked.
Psalms 91:9 (NASB) For you have made the LORD, my refuge, Even the Most
High, your dwelling place.
Psalms 91:10 (NASB) No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near
your tent.
Psalms 91:11 (NASB) For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To
guard you in all your ways.
Psalms 91:12 (NASB) They will bear you up in their hands, Lest you strike
your foot against a stone.
Psalms 91:13 (NASB) You will tread upon the lion and cobra, The young lion
and the serpent you will trample down.
Psalms 91:14 (NASB) "Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
Psalms 91:15 (NASB) "He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be
with him in trouble; I will rescue him, and honor him.
Psalms 91:16 (NASB) "With a long life I will satisfy him, And let him behold
My salvation."

Oh Jenny, I am so scared! I can remember only 5 years ago how devastating Cyclone Larry was. This storm - one of the largest in the world in the last 100 years - is stronger than that. I am scared. Really scared. Not of the storm itself, but the things we will have to deal with afterward. We here are so blessed we are out of harms way - just. Praying for all of you!

Dot said...

Dearest Jenny,

You are constantly in my prayers, and you and your country are on prayer lists of churches across America. You are being held continuously before the Lord.

You've been given many precious scriptures--stand fast on them. One of my favorites that I go to time and time again is Psalm 46. It begins with:

"God is my refuge and strength, a VERY PRESENT help in trouble. Therefore I WILL NOT FEAR, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried away to the very midst of the sea."

Later, in verse 10, we're told, "Be still, and know that I AM GOD." Be still, Jenny. God is in Queensland. God is in your home, in your inner room. Know that He is there. Be still and see the wondrous salvation of your Lord.

I will also be still, and wait to hear of the wondrous salvation He has for you and your precious family.

Dot
