Warning Signs and Hope

"And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken." Luke 21:26-27
 I am so impacted by what is happening in our world. My heart breaks for the people of Japan. For all of those who have lost their lives, loved ones, and belongings.

I am struck by all the different earthquakes, tsunamis, Nuclear explosions, and wars that are around the world. I believe we are living what has been written in the bible right now.

"Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. " Mark 13:10
Everyday we seem to see a new horror in the news.
Whether it is a devastating earthquake...


Or War...

The world is shaken, the waters rise to destroy, and the people of the world fight everyday. 

But there is hope in the ONE who is NOT moved.  The one who can not be shaken. He is our rock and our salvation. He is Faithful and True. And He is coming again soon.
"Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." Luke 21:28
Life has been put back in perspective. I don't know about you, but I want to be about my Father's business until that day.

In His Peace,
