In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, for You will answer me.
Matthew 19:13-14 [ http://iz3.me/qhgT1z3Fe1A1 ]
This past November, Typhoon Haiyan devastated coastal towns in the Philippines, killing thousands and making hundreds of thousands homeless as its storm surge raked its water across the numerous islands in the Philippines. The city of Tacloban was destroyed, creating communication, medical, and food and housing issues for the survivors.

One young mother was found wandering — alone and sad. A television interview revealed that she had lost her husband and all six of her daughters. She had found them in the debris and made a makeshift cover for their bodies. Numb with grief, she asked, “Where do I go?”
Where do we go when we are heart-broken and in despair? We go to the One who loves us with an everlasting love. We do not comprehend fully why events like this storm occur, but we do know that it is not God’s will that children perish (Matthew 18:14). Jesus himself made this assurance.
If you have gone through a loss recently, especially the loss of a child, you have the assurance from God Himself that you will see your child again one day and that God will keep your little one safe for eternity. God will attend to the voice of our call.
When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you’re slamming the door in the face of God.
