1 Kings 9.9
That's what's behind this God-visited devastation.
wow, God, you are really nothing but pure goodness! even in the most difficult of times, your presence is still the one that makes the difference, it's still the one that gives life! life-giving even in the midst of destruction, wow! even if the difficulty is our own doing - that doesn't matter, because you will always be there. it's you being with us that matters whether we are walking in discipline or going through a challenging time. thank you, God!
