On the Other Side

by Brenda Blakely  
8/31/2012 / Christian Living

No peace in Bethlehem that night, the town was filled with tired, frustrated people dragging their families into town to be registered and taxed. But on the other side of the frustration and disorder, Jesus, The Prince of Peace came to men.

Hurricane Katrina's tidal wave, crashed into the Mississippi coastline on August 29, 2005, there was no peace in Mississippi. But on the other side of frustration and disorder,

Jesus came:

in the gentle hand of a pastor calming a child and wrapping him in comfort from his heart.
in the radio announcer, who acknowledged God's providence and sovereignty as he spoke of tragedies and blessings and in announcements about people, who bought generators and as their power was restored gave the generators to others.
in the humble surroundings of a small family home shared because they felt blessed to have been spared.
in the lady who shared her cash at the gas pump with someone who had less.
in the young man who realized his elderly neighbor had not opened his door or windows in the heat and found him dehydrated and delusional.
in the neighbor who used his rationed gas to make trips for ice, water and necessities, hauled freezers to those who had power and on the way picked up a couple fleeing from the storm to carry them to a shelter.
in people who left yards full of trees and debris to help provide shelter for those who had lost their homes
in our President and other officials who continue to ask God to show us the way and to Bless America and who openly acknowledged prayer and the seeking of wisdom from God in this trying situation.

Jesus came in the convenience store clerk who made an old man's heart leap when she shared her joy.

When asked how could she be so joyful, she simply said, "I know no other way to live".

On the other side of Katrina's tidal wave the angels sang of peace and joy as Jesus came in the hearts of men.
