“A man that hath friends must shewn himself friendly: and THERE is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”
~ Proverbs 18:24
Thank You for this day. As many brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus are tested by storms, wind, and waves help them to completely trust in Christ for all things. You never promised us tomorrow so thank You kindly for today and so many other days of being an American, hearing the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ who lived a sinless life, was falsely tried and murdered and rose again to give those who believe in Him everlasting life. Even if we should perish tonight may find great hope and comfort in knowing we will be with You and millions of brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus for eternity, no other religion on earth gives freedom the way Christ gives. Bless Sundance and those who love You with all their hearts and let us love those around us through the power of the Holy Spirit so that those who do not know Christ as their personal Lord & Savior might see His love through us. I love this site, my fellow brothers and sisters and all the freedoms and priveledges we have been graced with by Your mighty right hand. Lord, thank You for all those who have shed their blood to buy my freedoms as an American and even more Christ who purchased the freedom from Hell that a worm like I truly deserve.
In Jesus Christ’s powerful and precious Name, Amen

So many heartfelt prayers, Lord. And I add mine…
You are a Rock, our Fortress and our Strong Tower. Blessed be the name of the Lord! Guard our nation tonight and over the next few days, Lord, especially over Florida and its people. Let your peace reign over all of it. Protect them with your amazing power, compassion and mercy. You are only hope. Amen.

To atone for my previous comment of probably questionable placement, I offer this. My dear late Mumm’s favorite : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2T1csHUgF4
Thank you ❤️
Whew!!!! Thank you for posting, skipper!! And to your Mum for her impeccable taste!! Nonstop prayers for everyone in Florida.
My multi-storm reminder from Psalms hangs on my kitchen wall. After the fluster and flurry of preparations and when the storm is bearing down, remember He said, “Be still and know that I am . . .” May God show mercy to Florida.

Prayer for Shelter Against the Storm, Rev. Thomas L. Weitzel
God of heaven and earth, God who carries our lives and the lives of our whole community in your hands, be with us in the peril of this day/night. Help us to release our anxieties and fears into those same caring hands, knowing in faith that your will for us is life and everlasting good. Send your holy angels to watch over us and guard us. May they spread their holy wings to give us shelter against the storm. For you alone, O God, are all good, all life, all love, and that love is for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Evacuating from Siesta Key.Sarasota, home for almost 30 years.
Made all preparations.
It is incredible how big Irma is and we learned over the years to respect the power of nature.
Our fate is in the Lord’s hands and we have faith.
I was moved by seeing neighbors helping each other today in a true American spirit, both physical and lending an ear to fears.
Phone calls came in from friends close and afar.
The rest of our family is hunkering down on the FL East coast.
Needed this post to stay focused– thank you Sundance and fellow Treepers.

God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Psa. 46:1
“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12:22-26

I appreciate this forum and this posting of Sundance’s is one of many reasons I come here where we can be encouraged and built up and have our minds and hearts strengthened by our contributions to one another. Thank you Sundance and everyone of you fellow Treepers.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Dear Treepers, When this strom comes, remeber you are in t he palm of His hand. Cry out to the Lord. He hears His people.
“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.” Psalm 107:6

Yes, He certainly does. Ask in Jesus’ name and He will certainly answer. Peace, be still…..

Who has ascended into heaven and descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has wrapped the waters in [b]His garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?

Listening to Pandora while reading the Treehouse and one of my most favorite songs came on (posting utube link, hope this works) – definitely a God Wink!!!!
Hope this works:
“Trust in You” ~ Lauren Daigle
“Oceans” ~ Hillsong United
That was a God wink, too 🙂
Waiting and watching for the great God!
“So why were they surprised? I have two theories : One: Because the storm was personal. They were the ones in the storm, and oftentimes while we see God do great and marvellous thing in the lives of those around us, we somehow feel that He won’t do the same for us.”
All the comments tonight have blessed my soul!! Thank you SD, and my fellow Treepers! As I lay in a warm bed on a cool Michigan Fall night, I pray earnestly for all of you, especially those in harms way. I have never been in or through a hurricane, so I have no idea what some of you have felt, or will feel soon. I pray that God keeps you all safe, and that you feel His incomparable power and love during the next week, and long after, as cleanup and restoration takes place.

I really believe that the evil is every where around us and getting worse, read about a woman pastor who promotes abortion, the peodophiles who are amongst us, influence of money and power among our politicians, Hollywood and movies, the abuse in our music world, drugs and alcohol abuse, the newsmedia, there is so much it is overwellming at times until something stupendous happens to remind us of God our savour is showing us his power and glory in these wonderous and terrible ways,
We as human beings and Gods Children need our wakeup calls, reminders of his wrath and glory, and he provides for us through sources like The wonderful Treehouse and it’s followers, the miracle
leadership voted in last year and ourselves to show through good example and faith in God and ourselves.
Thank you TreeHouse for giving us this opportunity to spread your message and to bring us back to our roots and Christian beliefs. We all can fight the evil with our goodness.
Evil has always been there. The more one reads the Bible the more you realize it. The devil’s greatest trick has been to convince man that he doesn’t exist. What we are witnessing is the light of truth being shown upon the shadows, casting the shadows away to reveal the putrid evil beneath. Witness the rage against today’s Christians and you see the face of evil. Whenever evil gets a foothold in this world and is allowed to grow, it attacks Christians and Jews. How many Christians in North Korea who have been sent to concentration camps to be starved and tortured and worked to death? If we ever find the true numbers it might surprise many.
KJV Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
What is greatest about Christianity is how the more it is persecuted and attacked, the greater it grows. It forces the believers to take a stand for what they believe in and the witnesses of that stand are strengthened. Were it not for the martyrdom of the Disciples, the truth of Christ might have died and been forgotten. What greater thing is there but to give your life for Christ? Those who witness that strength are emboldened.
When China went Communist, Christianity was very small in China but after the crackdown and slaughter, Christianity exploded in China. Yes, it hides in the shadows, believers meet in secret but the more they are persecuted the more Christianity thrives. Just like our bodies, that cannot increase in strength without being tested. You don’t gain muscle sitting around watching the boob tube, but moving, working, lifting heavy weights, pushing your heart harder and harder.
Witness the aftermath of Harvey, Irma and perhaps Jose. There you will find the best and the worst of humanity. The volunteers both onsite and those traveling many miles to come help and the donations. The mighty men and women of valor standing their ground defending their homes and families and resources against the looters and thieves.
Pray for POTUS, pray for America, pray for the people in Asia, pray for those in North Korea, pray for those about to be set upon by the wrath of Irma. Pray for a Christian Revival. We serve an awesome God, the one true God, who can do anything.
