Ever find yourself wondering what it looks like in the wake of a storm, weeks or months later?  Wondering who is suffering without knowing where to turn or even what redemption has already begun to bring light to the darkness of devastation, 
like beauty from the ashes.
One such storm was Typhoon Haiyan, after which I have found myself wondering what daily life was like now for it’s survivors. 
Except for most of the time, 
when it’s been far from my mind
seeing as how these suffering people are on the other side of the world and all.

~ Brad Pitt
Oh to live daily with that kind of passion and fire!  Lord, help me remember these people, ALL the people like them around the world who are still feeling hungry, hopeless, and even homeless.
 He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” – Matthew 25:45-46

Did this particular storm affect you in any way?  Have any of the figurative storms of life left you reeling lately?  Need prayer?
