There is a lot of destruction going on in and around us, even in this joyful season. Sunday's reading reminds me that as we call upon the Lord, we will also hear him calling out to us:

And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved . . . there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the Lord calls. - Joel 2:32

You may find yourself standing in the middle of a lot of rubble, but you ARE standing, and you are a survivor in every way that matters. May you and yours walk in the joyful realization that God can be trusted to make us stand (see Romans 14:3-5).
