Nature has a way of reminding people that we aren’t as ‘large and in charge’ as we often think we are.
There’s nothing quite as effective for humbling the pride of man as when nature slips the leash we tell ourselves we’ve got around its neck.
We’ve split the atom, so we TELL ourselves we’ve managed to harness the earth, wind, fire, and air, and bend them to our purposes.
A sudden tremor can rip up a city, or even sprout a volcano where none previously existed.
Floods overwhelm and wash levees away, exposing the communities that thought they were ‘safe’ behind it to a torrent of water.
Wildfires turn even the swankiest neighborhoods to ash.
Even something as harmless as the air we breathe can be transformed into a fearsome weapon under the right circumstances.
Ohio and Indiana (and a big chunk of the nation besides them) got a powerful reminder of just how beyond our control nature can really be.

Oh, no. So sorry to disturb your ‘reality TV’ watching, you sad little snowflakes. The weather warning was a big deal. The storms produced at least one fatality and some thirty-five injuries (that we know of so far).

“It looks in areas like a war zone, some of the houses were completely moved off their foundations and gone,” Celina Mayor Jeffrey Hazel told WDTN.

The city of Dayton and Montgomery County asked residents early Tuesday to conserve water after losing power to water plants and pumping stations.
Here is what some of the damage looked like:
The folded flag Carl Shackleford Jr is retrieving here was his father’s memorial flag.
It’s in moments like these that we can really feel the weight of God’s reply to Job.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
