God’s Eye on the Hurricane



I am reading Five Days at Memorial, how one hospital handled Hurricane Katrina. How might you respond to a disaster that seems to never end?


  • Denial
  • Keep my head down and move forward
  • I want to take control
  • Why me, Lord, why me?

This paragraph jumped out to me:

“Underlying the official response to the crisis was a lack of situational awareness–a view of the larger picture of what was happening and what needed to be done.”

What they lacked was a God’s eye view, the mind of Christ:

1 Corinthians 2:16 NLV
But we have the thoughts of Christ.bless Christ-minded

  1. It’s easy for me to understand the lack of SA; I’m living a disaster that doesn’t seem to end.

    The Big Picture is unavailable to me. I am trying to assume it’s general outlines, and to write what I write in line with that assumption, but that’s not really SA.

    In the end, when things get bad enough, SA contracts to the very small circle around out feet, and we can only respond within that constraint.

  2. But even within the boundaries of your personal disaster, you have the God’s-eye view of a bigger picture–thus your wise blogs on marriage and the stress of the challenge. You see beyond yourself and create a legacy of wisdom for others.
