Lord, You are awesome and worthy of our praise! You are constant — never changing — in the midst of what seems chaotic. Things certainly feel chaotic, shaken — hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, wars and rumors of war. It’s frightening Lord. But then I think of You and find peace because nothing takes You by surprise and You go before us.
