                                                     Testimony of Clara Lutz

       The Bible says to call upon the name of the Lord and He will answer, (see Jeremiah 33:3). We also read in Psalm 20:1, “In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry. May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm,” (NLT). That’s exactly what Clara Lutz prayed the night of December 10, 2021.
       On December 8th, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) said there was a slight risk of severe weather along much of the Mississippi Valley. But by December 10th, forecasters indicated that
atmospheric conditions favored the development of evening supercells capable of producing strong tornadoes. And they were correct. The deadliest tornado outbreak on record lasting thirteen hours occurred that night
producing catastrophic damage in the billions, causing over 92 fatalities affecting 250 miles across five states including Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, and Tennessee.
       Kentucky suffered the worst damage. That state alone saw 75 deaths. But not part of the overall death toll were two babies who were miraculously saved. That’s because their grandmother took
careful steps to see they were protected, and even more importantly, she trusted God.
       In an article by Binitha Jacob at International Business Times, Miss Clara Lutz explained she had been baby-sitting her two grandsons when the rumbling started. The storm was approaching her neighborhood and it was terrifying. She decided to place the infants inside a bathtub and wrapped them in blankets, adding a pillow for extra padding. She also placed a Bible beside them. Then the ground beneath her started shaking.
       According to ABC News, Lutz said, “I felt the rumbling, I felt the shaking of the house. Next thing
I knew, the tub had lifted and it was out of my hands. I couldn’t hold on, I just -- oh my God.”
       The tornado raged and the bathtub was ripped from the ground and tossed around with the babies still inside. In those dreadful moments, the water tank from the tub hit Lutz in the head. But when the Tornado finally passed, she wasted no time, searching through the wreckage in hopes that her grand-babies were somehow still alive.
       “I was looking everywhere to see where the tub may be. I had no clue at all where these babies was. All I could say was ‘Lord, please bring my babies back to me safely. Please, I beg Thee,’” she told WFIE-TV.
       The Lord heard Clara’s cry just like he heard David’s cry, “For in You, O Lord, I hope; You will hear,
O Lord my God,” (Psalm 38:15; NKJV).
       As the first responders came out to the area to help, they began searching through the debris near Clara’s home. They came to a bathtub that was turned upside down. And when they lifted it away they found two babies underneath: fifteen-month-old Kaden, and three-month-old Dallas. Dallas had a head injury with some bleeding but the bleeding stopped before they reached the hospital. Both children checked out to be fine and were later reunited with their parents who lived in the North end of the county. Amazingly, their home was virtually untouched by the storm.

Here is a another story of triumph in the midst of disaster. On the night of
November 6, 1977, the lives of several hundred people were changed forever
when a wall of water poured over the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi river.
Water dropped 186 feet onto automobile size boulders, then careened downstream
55 feet high, traveling 110 miles per hour. It raged through a campus,
taking everything in its path, to Lake Hartwell, 20 miles away.
Doug Veer was a survivor.
Within these pages you'll find the true account of what happened
that stormy night in November in a small college town in North East Georgia.

        Clara and her grandsons were spared because God answers prayers, and He responds to the faith of a believer. It was no accident that Clara put that Bible next to those babies. Was that a superstitious act? No, of course not. Rather, we believe she was making a statement to the Lord, God. It was her way of turning to Him in a moment of desperation. And He heard her heart’s cry because God is good.
       Let us continue to pray for the many people who were devastated by the storms. There were lives lost, properties destroyed, many folks were displaced and the task of rebuilding will be very hard in the days to come.
       The Lord will help us if we turn to Him. In our most difficult moments, the exercising of our faith will bring us through to victory. Let’s stand with these folks in need and believe God with them and for them, that good will come out of this bad situation.
