After the Storm (Part 2 of ?)

Written by
"Sufficient Unto the Day is the Evil Thereof." - Jesus as quoted from KJV (Matthew 6.34) 

I'm not necessarily a fan of the Bible in the old Kings English (KJV), but this one has stuck with me as poetic -- especially after the storm. 

To know me is to know I'm a planner. I look forward all the time (sometimes, maybe, too far forward) to see what's next, where I'm going, and for what should I prepare. 

During and after the storm, however, I've had to say, "I don't know" or "We'll see" an uncomfortable amount of times. Everything from weather to gasoline supplies have produced significant question-barriers urging me (forcing?) me to stay focused on the now, today and what I know. 

And lo and behold, today is enough. God is present yesterday. God is present today. God is present now. God is present. God is. God. 

I know you know this, and know this probably better than me. Maybe I simply needed to write it down for you to read it back to me. 

God is present in the storm and after the storm, and in many of life's hurricanes far more ferocious than Irma, but always present so I can always take solace in this. 

"Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
