On August 14th, I penned about a dream I had of a storm coming. Then 10 days ago I blogged about a storm is brewing…Even so, I did not expect Tropical Storm Imelda would actually manifest let alone drop 40 plus inches of rain despite the prophetic warnings. I suppose somethings you hope will not unfold.
Imelda went from being just an invest with only a 20% chance of developing into a cyclone to a tropical storm in 3 hours! Talk about “rapid intensification”! The first two days of the three day ordeal was no big deal other than lots of rain, but after ongoing rain and then thinking she moved to the east, Imelda released her wrath on Day 3 causing catastrophic flooding in the Houston, Galveston, and Beaumont metropolitan areas. I am in the process of uploading a video capturing our experience. For now, I wanted to publicly report we are fine. Afterall, our “home” floats! But many have not been so blessed. Tonight, as you rest in your dry homes, pray for those with with wet homes and cheeks.
I also found it interesting this verse of Isaiah 43:2 is 234 backwards, the number I have consistently seen since moving to Texas. A prophetic YouTube subscriber emailed me this same verse a few weeks ago on August 7th pointing out the 234 in this ominous verse. The numbers…the dream…the verse…the timing of the dream and emailed verse and then the storm. The Lord speaks in mysterious ways…if only we’d pay attention.
