Thank God the news about a possible massive air raids over all of Ukraine did not come true. They attacked the south and east of Ukraine. It was calm at our place, we even have light. Kyiv is struggling to supply residents with electricity. The city is often without electricity. Yesterday in Kyiv there was an air raid alert at 11:56 PM.
God, grant peace! That night in Kyiv was very difficult. The alarm lasted 5 hours.

The light is turned on for 5 hours, turned on for 2 hours and so cyclically.
At that time there is no light, water and heat. Internet and mobile telephony may also not work. Winter. This is how Russian terrorism works.
God give us peace.

The Word… The word that God gives, to me and to us residents of Ukraine, is very unequivocal and read in the key of war gives us and the boys fighting on the front lines great hope. Listen:
“Don’t you know this? Have you not heard? The Lord—is the eternal God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not get tired or weary, His wisdom is unfathomable. He gives strength to the weary and multiplies the power of the powerless. Boys get tired and weary, they falter, young men grow weak, but those who trust in the Lord regain their strength, they receive wings like eagles; they run without fatigue, without weariness they go.”
God did not leave Ukraine, just for the record.
Come, Lord Jesus!
“Behold, the Lord is coming to save His people, blessed are those who are ready to go out to meet Him.”
God is love.
“Come to Me, all you who are afflicted and burdened, and I will comfort you.”

We live in war, we do not live by war!
